Remarks :Interestingly I found this nest in a man- made habitat; a small roofed settlement in the forest. It had been built on a short wall supported by a concrete column. Nothing had been recorded on such a nesting behaviour of this elusive and shy species, before the present sighting. Female was incubating two eggs. - TH
