Oriental Magpie Robin in comfort behaviour

posted in: Comfort behaviour | 0

The above video came from Lena Chow who caught the Oriental Magpie Robin (Copsychus saularis) taking a sunbath and vigorously preening itself. Note that it used its foot to scratch its head. The documentation was made on 21st August 2011 at Singapore’s Kent Ridge Park.

Then came the pesky mynas and the magpie robin ended its comfort behaviour.
