Oriental Magpie-robin – odd nesting site

posted in: Nests | 0

“Odd nest that I spotted of an Oriental Magpie-robin (Copsychus saularis musicus). Built on top of a [series of] House (=Pacific) Swallow (Hirundo tahitica) nests. Had at least one juvenile within. Was feeding juvenile when I spotted the location which was just inside the entry to an underground car park. The adult was sharp and spotted me watching. It did not return until I was quite far away.”
