Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Endemic to southern India and Sri Lanka, the Yellow-billed babbler is very similar to the Jungle Babbler with which it is often confused. Watch out for its pale spot in front of the eyes and a pale crown that contrast with the dark throat and cheeks giving it a pale capped and blank-faced appearance. It has pale blue eyes and a pale base to its tail. Yellow-billed Babblers prefer drier habitats than the Jungle Babbler, though they can sometimes be seen in the same vicinity as Jungle Babblers. Also gregarious and noisy like the Jungle Babbler.
