Large-billed Leaf Warbler
Photographer : © Santanu Manna
Location :at ~3050m between Kaiakata and Kalipokhri, Singalila National Park, West Bengal, India
Date : 8 May 2018
English synonyms:Large-billed Leaf-Warbler, Large-billed Willow Warbler, Large-billed Willow-Warbler
Bird Family :Acrocephalinae - Tesias, Stubtails, Warblers & Tailorbirds
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Was collecting nesting material to build nest in a hanging rock covered with moss, a flowerless plant. Other birds too prefer this kind of place to build nest e.g Chestnut-crowned Warbler, Whiskered Yuhina, etc. I found this nest in between Kaiakata and Kalipokhri at an altitude of 10,000 ft and 25 ft above the ground. Just opposite to this nesting activity there was another nesting activity of Green-tailed Sunbird, preparing their nest with moss and leaves in a tree. - SM
