Binomial name: Pitta phayrei, Edward Blyth, 1863

The eared pitta (Hydrornis phayrei) is a species of bird in the Pittidae family. It is found in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, LaosMyanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

Range

This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for vulnerable under the range size criterion (extent of occurrence <20, 000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10, 000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure. For these reasons the species is evaluated as least concern.

Population size

The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be rare or very rare in most localities though occasionally locally common.
