Varied Sittella - Daphoenositta chrysoptera

If I didn't miss one, this is the first on TN.

Thanks to Steve to correct my note where I thought this is member of Nuthatch family.

Not even remotely related to Nuthatches. An example of convergent evolution of not related species.

Now usually placed within own family (Neosittinae). The latest DNA evidence places them as being related to Melanocharitidae (Longbills, and Berrypeckers), a family restricted to New Guinea.
