Malabar Whistling-Thrush

Myophonus horsfieldii Vigors, 1831

The Malabar Whistling Thrush (Myophonus horsfieldii) is a whistling thrush in the family Muscicapidae. They are also known locally by the name of Whistling Schoolboy for the whistling calls that they make at dawn that have a very human quality. The species is a resident in the Western Ghats and associated hills of peninsular India including central India and parts of the Eastern Ghats. Source: Wikipedia
