Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Stout shama with a broad, black-tipped, orangish tail. Male has a dark gray upper body, small white eyebrow, and orangish rump and belly. Female is more brownish above, with paler but more extensive orangish coloration on the breast and belly. Found in lowland and foothill regions, where it favors primary forest; less tolerant of disturbed or secondary forest than other shamas. Often forages close to or on the forest floor, as well as in trees. Song is a series of haunting, melodic whistles.
