May 21, 2017 – Indian Scimitar-babbler (Pomatorhinus horsfieldii)

These scimitar-babblers are found in parts of western, central, and southern India. They eat insects, spiders, berries, and nectar, foraging in pairs in the breeding season and in small flocks at other times. Pairs build loose dome nests together, concealing them in dense vegetation. Females typically lay two or three eggs per clutch. Known for being noisy birds, their bubbly call is often the first indication of their presence.
