Blue-crowned Laughingthrush Garrulax courtoisi


The blue-crowned laughingthrush is one of the most critically endangered birds. They have experienced devastating declines due to habitat loss caused by human development and the illegal pet and wildlife trade.

The blue-crowned laughingthrush is omnivorous. Pairs or groups forage for seeds, fruit, berries, and insects.
