Featured Subspecies: Heterophasia picaoides wrayi
NO UK STATUS / IUCN Red List: Least Concern
The Long-tailed Sibia is a member of the laughingthrush family though in person it has something of a magpie like quality with it's shape and movements. It was the first species I encountered properly at Genting Highlands but while noisily feeding actively they also quite secretive and unwilling to show itself for more than a few moments.
SUBSPECIES: H. p. picaoides, H. p. cana, H. p. wrayi, H. p simillima
