PLEASE! If you see any mistakes, I'm 100% sure that I have wrongly identified some birds.
So please let me know on my guestbook at the bottom of the page
The Rufous-winged fulvetta (Alcippe castaneceps) is a bird species of the family Pellorneidae. Its common name is misleading, because it is not a close relative of the "typical" fulvettas, which are now in the genus Fulvetta.
The black-crowned fulvetta (A. klossi) was until recently included here as a subspecies.
This 11 cm long bird has a dark-streaked chestnut crown, white supercilium bron upperparts and pale underparts. The wings show a striking contrast between the bright rufous primaries and the black coverts.
This is a noisy species with a rich warbled ti-du-di-du-di-du-di-du song and wheezy tsi-tsi-tsi-tsi call.
It is common in evergreen montane forests above 1200 m ASL, often feeding on vertical trunks.
