Grey headed parrotbill

The grey-headed parrotbill (Psittiparus gularis) is a bird species often placed with the Old World babblers (family Timaliidae) or in a distinct family Paradoxornithidae, but it actually seems to belong to the Sylviidae.


It is found in Eastern Himalaya, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and southern China. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

The subspecies P. g. margaritae of southern Vietnam and eastern Cambodia is usually regarded as a separate species, the black-headed parrotbill or black-crowned parrotbill.
