Bird Family :Timaliidae - Babblers, Babaxes, Mesia, Leiothrix, Cutias, Barwings, Minlas, Fulvettas, Crociases, Sibias, Yuhinas, Myzornis, Parrotbills & Rhabdornises
Red Data Status :Vulnerable
Remarks :The birds were on the southern part of the Lo Xo-pass at the forest edge, but out in the open in a bit bushy area. As far as I can see they prefer this kind of habitat, the same as Spectacled Barwing Actinodura ramsayi prefer. - BF
