I observed a Slaty-backed Forktail (Enicurus schistaceus) nesting in Cameron Highlands on 25th April 2022 at a jungle stream collecting nesting material. The bird was comfortable enough to allow me to watch.
Most nesting material I saw was leaf skeletons, picked up in the vicinity of the nesting site. Only a single bird was involved in collecting nesting material. The nest location was immediately adjacent to the stream next to a fallen tree trunk.
