Description

These are medium-sized, floppy-tailed landbirds with soft plumage. They are typically long-tailed, dark brown above, and white or orange-brown below. Many have striking head patterns, with a broad black band through the eye, bordered with white above and below.

They have strong legs and are quite terrestrial. Like other babblers, these are noisy birds, and the characteristic bubbling calls are often the best indication that these birds are present. As with other babbler species, they frequently occur in groups of up to a dozen, and the rainforest species like Indian Scimitar Babbler often occur in the mixed feeding flocks typical of tropical Asian jungle.

  • Large Scimitar Babbler, Pomatorhinus hypoleucos
  • Black-necklaced Scimitar Babbler, Pomatorhinus erythrocnemis
  • Black-streaked Scimitar Babbler, Pomatorhinus gravivox
