Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Brownish babbler with a rufous crown. Extremely similar to Rufous-capped Babbler, and often not safely distinguished in areas of range overlap. Rufous-fronted averages paler-throated, stubbier-billed, less yellow below, and has a duller and shorter crown patch.. Song is a variable ascending series of piping whistles: “tu-tu-tutututu!” Calls include quick isolated “chit” and “whit” notes, rolling rattles, and quick notes similar to those from the song. Found from lowlands up into the upper elevations, foraging in forests and edges with dense low vegetation.
