The Shama is a beautiful songbird. Its voice is rich, load and clear. Basically it can mimic all the other birds’ calls. When you listen for this bird in the forest, you must not listen entirely for the song, but instead for the sound of the voice; deep and rich.
These birds nest in bamboo.
Physical Description: They typically weigh between 1 and 1.2 ounces and are around 9 to 11 inches in length.
