Chestnut-headed Tesia

Cettia castaneocoronata


The chestnut-headed tesia is a small insectivorous songbird formerly of the "Old World warbler" family but nowadays placed in the bush warbler family (Cettiidae). It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam.


Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest.


This Tesia birds are rarely seen as most of the time they stay under the Bushes and Shrubs with its Loud call. One of the very hard to photograph Subject for me.
