Mountain Fulvetta

The Mountain Fulvetta (Alcippe peracensis), is a species of bird belonging to the Old World babbler family. It is found in Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam in subtropical or tropical moist mountain forests.

The Black-browed Fulvetta (Alcippe grotei), is sometimes considered to be conspecific with Mountain Fulvetta, but the two forms differ in morphology and vocalizations, and are separated by altitude range. Black-browed Fulvetta occurs primarily below 1300 feet, and Mountain Fulvetta above 3000 feet.

Both have a warm brown back and tail, whitish underparts, a grey face and a slate gray crown bordered below with a black line, but Black-browed has brown flanks and a weaker white eye-ring. The Mountain Fulvetta is 5.5 to 6 inches long.
