 Old World babbler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Old World babblers are a large family of mostly Old World passerine birds.
They are rather diverse in size and coloration, but are characterised by soft fluffy plumage.
The timaliids are one of two unrelated groups of birds known as babblers, the other being the Australasian Babblers of the family Pomatostomidae (also known as pseudo-babblers).

Pygmy Wren Babbler Pnoepyga pusilla One was seen by one observer at Lulagaon and another fed unconcerned at extremely close range (binoculars would not focus!) at Neora Valley.
The lightly streaked throat of these birds is indicative of the chumbiensis subspecies, and different from the two western subspecies.

The throat is plain white, blending into the broad, white upper breast which is heavily blotched and streaked with fl.
This species is a common resident, usually found in tangles and mixed scrubby growth at low and middle elevation, below 2500 m.
There are plumage differences, also; musicus has a greyish crown (not olive-brown), more distinct rufous-chestnut nape-collar, a larger fl mask and broad flish steaks on the breast with a larger white background.

 Foothills of the Himalayas Bird Watching Report
One such stop involved wading up a river valley at the village of Lother but unfortunately being Saturday there were a lot of locals having barbecues and impromptu discos that probably contributed to our lack of success.
One species we were particularly pleased to see was Green-billed Malkoha (having missed it in Chitwan) when a pair spent some time in a tree beside the track and despite their large size proved quite difficult to see.
For the final part of the afternoon we visited the Botanical Gardens at Godaveri and despite the large number of day-trippers, due to the fact that it was Saturday, we did manage to add a few good birds.
