Nest-Building Laughingthrush

Another sign of approaching spring: for the past fortnight I have often seen oriental magpies selecting sticks for their nests. Now I have seen white-browed laughingthrush (pterorhinus sannio, 白颊噪鹛) actively pursuing the same. No doubt soon the prinia will be up on the reeds singing their mating calls, all nature will be preparing for the next generation.
