Nesting of Jungle Myna on a limestone outcrops

posted in: Nesting | 0

“Both the Jungle Myna (Acridotheres fuscus torquatus) and the Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) use the limestone hills extensively for nesting. Nests can be at varying heights, often quite high up on cliff surface. This pair [of Jungle Myna] had found a small crack at the entrance to a cave (lower than usual) and were busy padding it with small leaves and dried vegetable matter. Was amazed to see them squeeze through the small entrance.”
