|[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista|
|Tailor birds are small birds belonging to the genus Orthotomus often placed in the Old World warbler family Sylviidae. However, recent research suggests they more likely belong in the Cisticolidae and they are treated as such in Del Hoyo et al. (2006). One species, the Mountain Tailorbird (and therefore also its sister species Rufous-headed Tailorbird), is actually closer to an old world warbler genus Cettia.|
They occur in the Old World tropics, principally in Asia.
These warblers are usually brightly coloured, with green or grey upperparts and yellow white or grey underparts. They often have chestnut on the head.
Tailorbirds have short rounded wings, short tails, strong legs and long curved bills. The tail is typically held upright, like a wren. They are typically found in open woodland, scrub and gardens.
Tailorbirds get their name from the way their nest is constructed. The edges of a large leaf are pierced and sewn together with plant fibre or spider's web to make a cradle in which the actual grass nest is built.

Foto veramente bella di questo piccolo uccello che rifocilla a i cui piccoli,eccellenti colori e un’ottima nitidezza, bella la composizione complimenti.
a great picture captured in a perfect timing with stunning detail and very well composed. good WB and nice PoV.
This picture of a Tailor Bird's nest with chicks in it demonstrates why these birds are given that name, Arindam. We can see that the nest has been made by stitching the leaves together. The parent bird is in the process of feeding the young, and that in itself makes this pic a kind of scoop.
Coming to the technical aspects, the picture is somewhat OE. This can be rectified through a little readjustment of levels on a good picture editor. Focus is slightly below par, in my opinion.
Let me see if I can muster up a passable Workshop on it, if you don't mind. If I can't, then let it be.
All the same, kudos for the great effort!
