Tim Melling – Stripe-throated Yuhina

Tim writes: Stripe-throated Yuhina (Yuhina gularis) is a common bird of forested hills in the southern Himalayas across to China and Vietnam.  They would be a plain, unmemorable bird apart from an enormous, erect crest and a distinctive stripey throat.  Both its English and scientific names come from the Nepalese word for this bird (Yuhin), although there are twelve species of Yuhina.  Apparently they are related to White-eyes and are in the family Zosteropidae. 

I photographed this individual at Labahe in Sichuan.
