White-rumped Shama collecting nesting material

posted in: Nesting | 2

A White-rumped Shama (Copsychus malabaricus) was photographed by Ingo Waschkies in Khao Yai, Thailand in May 2009.

Ingo found a nest that was under construction. Not wanting to disturb the nest, he waited where the pair of birds were collecting their nesting material to photograph. The male was a bit shy, but the female came out into full sunlight where the shot of her with a dried leaf in her bill was shot.

This post is a cooperative effort between NaturePixels.org and BESG to bring the study of bird behaviour through photography to a wider audience.
