Magpie robins have a loud, varied and melodious song. Although they live primarily in forests and open jungle, they have also adapted to residential areas. They nest in holes or crevices in trees, banks, walls, buildings, or homes. Females lay three to six eggs twice each season, and both males and females sit on the eggs.
