Himalayan Treepie

Dendrocitta formosae


It is the same size as other Treepie species and is separated from them by the overall grey colour of the body. The face and throat are dark and black with a diffuse mask. The body is grey on the underside becoming whiter towards the vent. The back and scapulars are brownish. The crown and nape are greyish and the black wing has a prominent white carpal patch. The vent is rufous and the outer tail feathers and tips of the central feathers are black.


Seen at 4000 ft ASL.


This treepie is mostly an arboreal feeder but will take some food from the ground especially in cultivated regions.
