Puff Throated Babbler (Pellorneum ruficeps)

These Babblers mainly forage on the undergrowth and the forest floor, taking various insects and other invertebrates. This one ran into me as I was lying on the ground waiting for it to emerge from the nearby bushes 🙂
These birds are brown to olive coloured backs and white below with brown streaks on the breast and belly. They have a chestnut crown and dusky cheeks. The throat is white, and is sometimes puffed out thus giving it the name.

Like all Babblers, they are non migratory. They have a wide-spread distribution and are currently categorized as Least Concern under IUCN classification
