Mountain fulvetta

Binomial name: Alcippe peracensis, Richard Bowdler Sharpe, 1887

The Mountain Fulvetta (Alcippe peracensis) is a 14 to 15.5 cm long species of bird in the Old World babbler family. It is found in Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam in subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

The Black-browed Fulvetta, Alcippe grotei, is sometimes considered to be conspecific with Mountain Fulvetta, but the two forms differ in morphology and vocalisations, and are separated altitudinally. Black-browed Fulvetta occurs primarily below 400 m, and Mountain Fulvetta above 900 m.

Both have a warm brown back and tail, whitish underparts, a grey face and a slate grey crown bordered below with a black line, but Black-browed has brown flanks and a weaker white eyering.

Mountain has a yi-yuii-uwee-uwee song, whereas Black-browed's is yu-chi-chiwi-chuwoo, yu-uwit-ii-uwoo.
