The white-crested laughingthrush (Garrulax leucolophus) is a member of the Leiothrichidae family. It is found in forest and scrub from the Himalayan foothills to Indochina.
The white-crested laughing thrush is rufescent-brown and white, and the black mask is relatively broad.
The white-crested laughing thrush gets its name from because when a group of them are vocalizing together, it sounds like laughing.
They build a wide, shallow nest made with bamboo leaves. They produce 3 to 5 eggs that incubate for about 15 days, allowing White-crested Laughing Thrushes to generally produce at least two clutches of young each year.Males and females form strong bonds with each other, both assisting in incubating the eggs and tending to the chicks once they’ve hatched.
