Fall season official starts few days ago and to my surprise I recently found out that one of my breeding shama pair has few chicks in their nest. For the last two weeks, I think the breeding season is over and with busy schedule, I didn't watch the birds much except come out to feed and change water. I noticed few empty egg shells on the aviary floor last week but just think they are from previous clutch and the bird just moving them around. Few days ago, I start to hear the chick call and the parents bring food to the nest. So excited! The parents starts to show sign of molting yet still be a dedicate parents and feed their chicks constantly. I love keeping White-rumped shama! :)

I think the breeding season here in the US is ended already or about to end in just few more weeks. One of the adult male shama is in the molting process. The other shama pairs are still singing with no sign of molting yet. One pair seems to still incubate some eggs. Most of the chicks born this year is in the molting process right now.
