Geoff Lim came across a flock of White-crested Laughingthrush (Garrulax leucolopus) “foraging on the ground, flinging dried leaves and twigs etc. like their regular foraging behavior. Two birds were in the nearby rubbish bin foraging and I spooked them when I crept up. They soon returned and waited to evaluate how dangerous I was before jumping into the bin again. Two Javan Mynas (Acridotheres javanicus) were on hand at the bin as well.”
Will this laughingthrush eventually becomes a scavenger like the Javan Myna?
