Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An unapologetically drab and unmarked fulvetta, often seen in association with mixed-species foraging flocks. Brown with a gray wash to the head; Southeast Asian birds have a thin black brow line that Indian birds lack. Lacks the bright white eyering and more prominent brow stripe of Nepal and Yunnan Fulvettas. Inhabits hill and montane forest, where it forages actively in forest and forest edge. Song consists of a brief or mid-length phrase of pleasant-sounding whistles, usually with a short ascending note toward the end. Calls include loud sputtery chattering and rattling.
