Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, ornate thrush found only on Enggano, off the coast of Sumatra. Inhabits native forest and forest edge, where it tends to forage on the ground in areas with a well-shaded understory. Note dark orange crown and nape, black chest, spotted wings, and white belly. Song is a series of high-pitched whistles, warbles, and chattering notes; like many other Geokichla thrushes, gives a high, thin call note “tseee.” Formerly considered a subspecies of Chestnut-capped Thrush, which is not found on Sumatra.
