Distracting feeding behaviour of Zitting Cisticola

posted in: Feeding strategy, Nesting | 0

Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS returned to the nesting Zitting Cisticola (Cisticola juncidis malaya) site near Canning Garden Home, Ipoh City, Perak, Malaysia on 2nd June 2010 to review the situation.

He found another pair of Zitting Cisticola with chicks but failed to locate the nest. However, he saw an adult delivering food. In one instance when he got too close to the adult, it chose to eat the grasshopper rather than lead him to the nest.
