White-spotted laughing thrush


White-spotted laughing thrush (Lanthocincla ocellatus)

The white-spotted laughing thrush is still widespread in Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar and Nepal. It prefers high altitude areas of mountain forests. Its presence is more likely to be detected by ear not by eye. The striking plumage seems to be eyecatching at first sight but disappears fastly in the lights and shades of the forest.
