Ashy-headed Laughingthrush (Endemic bird to Sri Lanka)

The ashy-headed laughingthrush is a rangy bird, 23 centimeters (9 in) in length with a long floppy tail. It is rufous-brown above and deep buff below, with a grey head and white throat. Like other babblers, these are noisy birds, and the characteristic laughing calls are often the best indication that they are present since they are often difficult to see in their preferred habitat.

I manged to photograph this bird in Sinharaja Forest Reserve. One of my favorite shots as I mange to get the isolated bird with a clear background.
