Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Beautiful brownish laughingthrush with intricate black dappling, speckling, and spotting all over the body. Note orange ear patch, pale bluish eyebrows and wing panel, and messy black smattering on the lower neck. White-tipped tail, streaked (not solid black) forehead, and blue feathers surrounding the eye eliminate warmer-colored Rufous-chinned Laughingthrush. Inhabits hill and mountain forests. Not as social as other laughingthrushes; usually found singly or in pairs. Song is a long, musical series of warbled notes, unlike the rather plain-sounding and repetitive song of Rufous-chinned. Call is a rasping buzz.
