Salam Tabib.
Ini salah satu burung kegemaran saya semasa kecil. Suka kerana warna bulunya yang cantik. Masa tu pernah jumpa sarang burung ini ditepi kawasan sunggai. Sekarang baru rasa agak lain.Burung ini membuat sarang di tebing tanah dengan membuat lubang didalamnya. Pernah lihat ke sarangnya di atas pokok?

Burung ni tak pernah buat sarang di pokok. Seperti yang yang Pn. Normala pernah lihat, bersarang di dalam lubang di tepi tebing sungai atau di lereng bukit.
