Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, compact, rather sluggish bird of foothill forests, often seen with mixed flocks. Male has a black head, smart white eyebrows, bright orange wing panel, and white underparts. Female is much paler, with a gray head and back, a pale tan belly, and rufous and olive panels in the wings. Blyth’s Shrike-Babbler is very similar; males have a darker red wing panel and paler gray back, while females have a darker gray head with a pale crown. Song is a bouncy trio of notes: “prew-chew-chyiw!”
