Oriental magpie-robins nest in tree hollows or niches in walls or building, often adopting nest boxes. They line the cavity with grass. The eggs are incubated by the female alone for 8 to 14 days. Females spend more effort on feeding the young than males.Males spend more time on nest defense.
Occurring across most of the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia, they are common birds in urban gardens as well as forests.
I have photographed the sequence of the process of feeding the young Oriental magpie-robin. The nest is in a hollow of the bottle brush tree.
