I observed this pair of Oriental Magpie Robins (Copsychus saularis musicus) collecting nesting material. The location is about 1.5 km on a very large, open trail, with primary jungle on both sides. This was unexpected as usually see them nesting in urban or semi-urban sites. Both the female (Post 1) and male (Post 2) were collecting dead twigs for the nest.
