Abstract

The author found two nests made by the Red-billed Leiothrix Leiothrix lutea (Timaliidae, Passeriformes), which was an introduced species to Japan, at Saorigahara on the foot of Mt. Sanrei, Kochi Prefecture. The nests, which were in the sasa bamboo shrubs, had been used in the breeding season in 2007. These are considered to be the first evidence of breeding of the Red-billed Leiothrix from Shikoku Island.
