Gray-brown laughingthrush with pale eyes and a prominent yellow patch on the wings. Can be very tame; a common sight around campsites, rest stops, and tourist attractions throughout much of its range. Garrulous and social, often seen in small to medium-sized flocks. When not scrounging for human-made trash, it forages on the ground and in low undergrowth, sometimes associating with other species in mixed flocks. Adaptable, inhabiting forests, open scrubby areas, and parks.
