PARROT TRIVIA: What amazing nest-building technique does the tailor bird use? The golden-headed cisticola (or "tailor bird") of Australia collects spiderwebs and uses them to sew together its nest! This small bird, Cisticola exilis, uses its beak as a drill to make tiny holes in leaves and grass blades. Then it carefully separates the strands of a spiderweb and threads the web through the holes, pulling it tight by hovering and backing away. The whole operation takes about five days. When it's done, the bird has a neat, cozy nest!
