Thanks for correcting Peter.Really appreciate it.

The Black-eared Shrike-babbler (Pteruthius melanotis) is a bird species traditionally considered an aberrant Old World babbler and placed in the family Timaliidae. But as it seems, it belongs to an Asian offshoot of the American vireos and may well belong in the Vireonidae. Indeed, since long it was noted that their habits resemble those of vireos, but this was believed to be the result of convergent evolution.

It is found in Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Hi Foozi, dear friend.
Despite the bad natural lighting you managed to take an amazing picture of a cute birdy. Skill use of tripod and flash lighting, impressive POV and perfect reproduction of all details of the bird and surroundings. Excellent job. TFS and kind regards.
