Bird Family :Garrulacinae - Laughingthrushes, Liocichlas & Hwameis

Remarks :I don't know where the bird was caught and did not see any suitable forests near Prapat. However, during the second part of the bus trip from Prapat to Sibolga we passed through extensive, seemingly rather undisturbed forests that could potentially harbour Sumatran Laughingthrushes. - PN
