I had an extended opportunity to watch a social group of Black-eared Shrike-Babblers (Pteruthius melanotis tahanensis) forage together. Although usually encountered as solitary birds, they are occasionally seen as family or social units. There were 2 adult males, 2 adult females and 2 juveniles in this social group.
