Black-throated parrotbill

Binomial name: Suthora nipalensis, Brian Houghton Hodgson, 1837

The Black-throated Parrotbill (Paradoxornis nipalensis) is a bird species often placed with the Old World babblers (family Timaliidae) or in a distinct family Paradoxornithidae, but it actually seems to belong to the Sylviidae.

It is found in the northern regions of the Indian Subcontinent, primarily in the central and eastern Himalayas, and in adjoining parts of Southeast Asia. The species ranges across Bhutan, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, Tibet and Vietnam. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.
