Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Like many other babblers, this is a handsome bird but difficult to see well, as it forages in dense vegetation. Bright rufous above and gray below, with a black throat and bright white brow and circular spot at the base of the bill. Inhabits primary and secondary growth, including wet, swampy areas and weedy plantations from lowlands up into the foothills. Song is a series of rapidfire, resonant-sounding hoots. Calls include an array of loud, insistent chattering and rattling notes.
