Brown Cheeked Fulvetta

The Brown-Cheeked Fulvetta ( Alcippe poioicephala ) is a very nondescript bird when it comes to appearance. However, it has got a remarkably melodious voice and whistle. This was the first Fulvetta, I ever saw and the first one on my blog. I was unable to identify the bird in the field, since the brown cheeked Fulvetta, is quite different from it other cousins. Fulvetta's were once in the Babbler family and this one was called the Quaker Babbler.
Sighted at Ganeshgudi, Karnataka.
