July 6, 2017 – Yellow-eyed Babbler (Chrysomma sinense)

These babblers are found in South and Southeast Asia, in parts of India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, southern China, Laos, and Vietnam. They eat insects, including caterpillars and grasshoppers, along with spiders and berries. During the winter they forage in flocks of four to twenty birds, roosting together in dense bushes at night, sometimes with other flocks. Males and females build nests in low shrubs, where the females lay clutches of four or five eggs. Chicks stay with their parents for several months after fledging.
