Rufous-chinned Laughingthrush 20170511
The rufous-chinned laughingthrush (Garrulax rufogularis) is a bird species in the family Leiothrichidae.
This mid-sized laughingthrush is found along the Himalayas and can be identified by the combination of the black cap and band on the brown tail. The underparts are greyish while the upperparts have scale like feather patterning. A distinctive pale loreal patch of buff colour and a broad dark moustachial stripe which borders the rufous chin and ear coverts are identifying features. There is however considerable geographic variation in plumage. (Source: wiki)
