March 13, 2017 – White-collared Yuhina (Yuhina diademata)

These yuhinas are found in open broadleaf forests in parts of China, Myanmar, and Vietnam. Foraging in pairs or small flocks, they eat mostly insects, including beetles, as well as seeds and rhododendron nectar. Their cup-shaped nests are constructed from leaves, grass, and roots combined with spiderwebs or moss. Females incubate two to three eggs and both parents feed the chicks.
