Birds Are Famous For Many Things, But Sewing? That’s A First!


We might have sewing machines now but most of us still go for handicraft and needlework when it comes to grace and elegance. A hand working tirelessly day and night to create intricate threadwork is nothing short of magical.

Is sewing peculiar only to humans, though?

Not all birds need straws and twigs to build a nest, and the tailorbird is a shining example of this lot. Named as aptly and could have been, the tailor bird is an expert when it comes to sewing nests. These birds use fresh green leaves to give their nests some structure. The thread? Think spider web and plant fibre!

Sounds almost impossible, right?

But it’s real, and we’ve got proof!

and here sits the little miss, happy in her abode!

Okay. Petition to make beaky-craft a thing, anyone?
