The Silver-eared Laughingthrush is listed as a Least Concern bird; it is found in southern Yunnan, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand. This species is thriving well in Doi Lang, Chiang Mai, in which its habitat is perfect to live. It is a voracious eater and intimidates other birds during stakeouts. Doi Lang is a perfect habitat since it is cold up there, occasional raining, abundant of montane forest vegetation, worms and insects are many as food supply.
We took photographs of this bird when it was very cold, windy, and foggy, so we had no choice for the best photographs. Rain came early to Thailand and we can’t do anything about it. We are lucky to have this though as one of our target birds which showed up.
