Remarks :We observed single nest of Oriental Magpie Robin in tree hole. We also notice its same type of nest last year at same place. This year we went there little late compare to our last year visit. Chicks were grown well. They were total 5 in number. Every time parents came to feed them they make lot of noise and try to get food from them. Out of 5 one particular chick most of time come out of the nest and try to attract the parents for the food. During our 2 hours observation we observe that Oriental Magpie Robin take the fecal sac two time from the nest and they came to feed chicks 9 times. We were standing behind the trees so they do not disturbed from their normal behavior.-PM
