|The Short-tailed Babbler |
Occurs in the Sundaic lowlands, from southern Tenasserim, Myanmar, peninsular Thailand, Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Kalimantan (including the Natunas and Anamba islands) and Sumatra (including offshore islands), Indonesia and Brunei, where it is generally very common in lowland evergreen forest, including swamp forest, to 1,000 m (Smythies 1981, Mann 1987, Lekagul and Round 1991, MacKinnon and Phillipps 1993, Robson 2000). Forest destruction in the Sundaic lowlands of Indonesia has been so extensive that all primary formations are expected to disappear by 2010, and the situation is little different in Thailand and Malaysia, but the speciesí ability to survive in hill-slope forest and second growth (King et al. 1975, Robson 2000) implies that it is not immediately threatened.
