|I found it very strange that the resident birds are breeding in the month of February, this I have not come across in my past over 15 years of stay and work on birds in Kutch.
Sirkeer Malkhoa 1 nest found in Acacia nilotica tree 3 metres from ground in the middle canopy. One of the birds was
seen bringing food (crushed fruits of Salvadora persica) for the incubating partner.
I have seen the Common Wood Shrike, Sykes's Nightjar, Marshall's Iora, and resident larks in nuptial displays.
Generally, the resident birdlife of a desert would make nests with the onset of monsoon (June-September) to take the advantage of the
abundant food supply. - JT
