White-throated Laughingthrush

Posted on Updated on

Garrulax albogularis
Nepali Name: सोइरने तोरीगाँडा Soirane Torigada


Notes:
1. Lives in gangs that do not break up even during the breeding season.
2. One of the most common laughingthrush in the Kathmandu Valley along with the White-crested Laughingthrush and Striated Laughingthrush. The three species overlap in so many places that I wonder if there isn’t some differences in their preferred habitat?
3. Just like the other Laughingthrushes are the gangsters of Himalaya forests.
