Bird Family :Timaliidae - Babblers, Babaxes, Mesia, Leiothrix, Cutias, Barwings, Minlas, Fulvettas, Crociases, Sibias, Yuhinas, Myzornis, Parrotbills & Rhabdornises
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :I watched an adult male and an immature male that were foraging high up - I was on a slope and the crown of the tree was at eye level. Largely animal prey was taken.
Taxonomic Notes :Note that the form flaviscapis is now considered a separate monotypic species endemic to the mountains of Java: Pied Shrike-babbler Pteruthius flaviscapis.

Western Himalayan birds are sometimes separated under the name ripleyi from Eastern Himalayan (through to western Myanmar) birds validirostris, but there is considerable uncertainty about where the division should be, and we have therefore retained all Himalayan birds here as validirostris pending clarification.
