Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Streaky brown laughingthrush-like babbler with a very limited range. Note slightly downcurved dark bill and thick black moustache stripe. Very similar to closely related Chinese Babax, and once considered the same species, but ranges do not overlap. Found in open forest, forest edge, and tangles at 1200-2800 meters of elevation. Gives persistent inflected bubbling whistles: “puh-pooo-yih! puh-pooo-yih!”
