[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jungle Babblers (Turdoides striata) are gregarious birds that forage in small groups of six to ten birds, a habit that has given them the popular name of Seven Sisters. It is a common resident breeding bird in most parts of the Indian Subcontinent and is often seen in gardens within large cities as well as in forested areas.

Jungle babbler is non-migratory, and has short rounded wings and a weak flight. The sexes are identical, drably coloured in brownish grey with a yellow-bill. They feed mainly on insects, but also eats grains, nectar and berries.

Classification:

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passeriformes
Family: Timaliidae
Genus: Turdoides
Species: striata
