Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Sleek gray songbird with white cheek patch and black face and throat; Hainan subspecies has a browner body and no white patch. Forages on the ground, often in dense shrubbery, where it noisily flips over leaves and twigs to root out invertebrates. Usually found in pairs or small flocks. Noisy and vocal; a beautiful songster with a rich, warbling song, into which it often expertly incorporates the vocalizations of other species.
