The largest adjutant nesting concentration on earth occurs in the villages of Dadara and Pacharia where adjutants select large mature trees to raise their young. From the time of hatching, chicks remain in the nest for 4 months and are entirely dependent on their parents to provide a steady supply of food and water. Dadara, Assam, India.
