Birds are taking full care of their young ones. They are true engineers found in the nature. Although nest construction is a tough job but this job making easy by these beautiful creatures of the nature. Ashy prinia is a small bird but their style of construction of the nest is quite interesting and much difficult. In this MS we have observed the breeding biology, nesting pattern and parental care of Ashy prinia. This study was carried out from 14 July 2017 to 6 August 2017; it includes construction of nest, egg laying, hatching of young ones and post birth care of young ones etc by the beautiful bird. This was a wonderful experience for us, because of the study we are so close to the small bird Ashy prinia. This study was baseline work for the new comers.
