Dainty minivet of dry forests, scrubland, and cultivation edge in Myanmar’s central Irrawaddy plains. Male is black and white, with an orange patch on the chest. Female is paler, replacing much of the male’s black with soft gray-brown. Both sexes have a broad white eyebrow, large white wing patches, and a white rump with a pale orangish patch in the center. Often moves in pairs and small flocks. Song is a high, sweet burst of warbling twitters. Calls include sharp “djeep” and a buzzier descending whistle.
