Old World Barblers

 

The Sumatran Laughingthrush (Garrulax bicolor), also known as the Black-and-white Laughingthrush, is endemic to the island of Sumatra in Indonesia, where it lives in highland forests.

This species is threatened by habitat loss and capture.

Similar species: The Sumatran Laughingthrush looks similar to the White-crested Laughingthrush (G. leucolophus) of which it was formerly treated as a subspecies. However, while the plumage of the Sumatran Laughingthrush is blackish-brown and white; the plumage of the White-crested Launghingtrush is rufescent-brown and white.
