Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small but robust babbler; shy and social like most of its relatives, it moves about noisily through the undergrowth in pairs or flocks. Attractive and distinctive if seen well; rufous-tinged brown with a white throat, a broad white crescent under the eye, and a cluster of scaly white speckles on the neck. Found in hill and montane forest, where it frequently joins mixed feeding flocks foraging in the undergrowth. Song is a pleasant three-note series of high whistles: “tee-dee-tah!”. Gives typical babbler chatter; this species has a distinctly wet rattle.
