Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Saw this 3 birds sleeping together during a night walk.
Happy they got the correct ID back. Thanks.
Thanks, @Malcom and @Daniele with the ID help :)
Yuhina everetti is the most current scientific name according to Clements. Yuhina castaniceps is a Striated Yuhina, restricted NE India across to China and down to Thailand. Yuhina everetti is endemic to Borneo.
Definitely not a Rufous-crowned Babbler, these are Chestnut-crested Yuhina, Staphida everetti, or Yuhina everetti or castaniceps, the underside of the tail gives them away. I have three scientific names so checking which is most up-to-date before making my suggestion.
Thanks, @Daniele for further clarification.Will remove the ID for the meantime.
Hi Albert and Sukanya! I'm no specialist of this area, but all images I can see online for the Rufous-crowned babbler show that only the crown is rufous for this bird, whereas the birds in this photo have rufous on the crown and cheek as well. The tail also seems different. I will ask Malcolm to double-check for you.
Hope so, not too many Members/Rangers now helping with ID :(
Well, if we are wrong I am sure others on PN will point it out!
Unfortunately, I am not too certain.
Is it the right one???
Thanks, @SukanyaDatta for the ID :)
Ha ha, yea, they like cozying up at night :D
This reminds me of images of long-tailed tits sleeping tight together to conserve energy:https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/groups/southwilt...
