The Blyth’s Shrike-babbler or Pteruthius aeralatus¬†is found in the eastern Himalayas and the Southeast Asia from nother Burma to southern Cambodia. It is also found in Thailand in which Doi San Ju is a perfect habitat as a montane forest. The males and females have different plumages and variations occur through as they are treated as subspecies.

We had a very brief moment with it as it appeared quickly while the fog was thick, and the relentless movement from one branch to another lessened the chances of getting the right photographs of this bird. I was just lucky to at least get some good ones to choose.
