February 28, 2017 – Ashy Prinia or Ashy Wren-warbler (Prinia socialis)

These birds are found in much of South Asia, in parts of India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and western Myanmar. They eat mostly insects and their larvae, along with small spiders and occasionally nectar. Building nests from various grasses, or several leaves stitched together and lined with hair, both parents care for the chicks. They are said to make a distinctive snapping sound during flight, which may be produced by their feathers, though the source of the sound has not been definitively determined.
