      Studies on the feeding ecology of large grey babblerTurdoides malcolmi (Sykes) were carried out during August 1981 to July 1982 at Ludhiana. Observations on feeding behaviour and feeding association with other bird species were recorded throughout the season. Gut contents of 125 adults and 20 nestlings revealed that this species is mainly insectivorous and annual percentage of animal matter in the diet was found to be 62 and 93 respectively.
