Giant Babax

Pterorhinus waddelli (Dresser, HE 1905)

The giant babax is a species of bird in the laughingthrush family Leiothrichidae, found in India and Tibet. It prefers the low bushes at the edge of the southern Tibetan plateau, and is threatened by habitat loss. A common sight around villages and monasteries, where it feeds off scraps, it is a bulky, long-tailed brown bird with a curved bill and dark streaks. Its vocalizations vary between melodic flute-like notes and harsh jabbering ones. Source: Wikipedia
