Rufescent Prinia’s nest

posted in: Nests | 1

Adrian Lim a.k.a. wmw998 located and photographed a well camouflaged nest of a Rufescent Prinia (Prinia rufescens). This bird is resident in Peninsular Malaysia but not in Singapore.

The nest was built deep down a pair of large leaves stitched together with silk or floss.

“In the process of stitching, the bird might have misjudged, therefore the random holes! Not bad really, for ventilation purpose… or maybe that was the real reason!” added Adrian.
