Grey-headed parrotbill

Binomial name: Psittiparus gularis, George Robert Gray, 1845

The Grey-headed Parrotbill (Paradoxornis gularis) 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 Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

The subspecies P. g. margaritae of southern Vietnam and eastern Cambodia is usually regarded as a separate species, the Black-headed Parrotbill or Black-crowned Parrotbill.
