Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, dark scimitar-babbler. Brown upperparts and white underparts separated by an orangish stripe running along either side of the bird from the face down to the vent. Lightly backswept mustache and a jagged band across the breast are made of the eponymous black streaks. Found in forest, edge, weedy fields, and gardens. Like many other scimitar-babblers, has a frequently-used and advanced repertoire of hoots, cackles, and rattles.
