Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized, strikingly patterned songbird endemic to Taiwan, where less common than Taiwan Scimitar-Babbler. Brown above, white below, with rich olive-brown flanks, rusty undertail coverts, and black “necklace” of blobby black streaks. Inhabits foothill and montane forests, where it skulks in undergrowth and shrubby edge. Pairs duet, giving bouncy-sounding hoots; alarm calls harsh and grating.
