The nest of a 'Prinia', Kosgama, Sri Lanka.

Photo of a nest of a 'Prinia' on a tree close to the entrance to a house at Kosgama, Avissawella. The Crow Pheasant ('Ati kukula' S - 'Senpaham' T) raids the birds nests and eats up the chicks while the smaller made parents look on in anguish. This may be one of the reasons why the nests are built close to human habitation.
