Chestnut-winged babbler

Binomial name: Stachyris erythroptera, Edward Blyth, 1842

The chestnut-winged babbler (Cyanoderma erythropterum) is a babbler species in the family Timaliidae. It occurs in the Malay Peninsula from southern Thailand to Singapore, and in Sumatra. It inhabits forests and shrublands up to 800 m altitude. It is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List.

It is chestnut-brown with a greyish face and underparts, and is 12.5-13.5 cm long. It feeds on small Coleoptera beetles, Phasmida insects, ants, and Hemiptera bugs.

Timalia erythroptera was the scientific name proposed by Edward Blyth in 1842 for an olive-brown babbler from Nepal.

It was later placed in the genus Stachyris, but since 2020 is recognised as a Cyanoderma species.
