The Blue-crowned Laughing Thrush (also spelled Laughingthrush) is native to
two provinces of southern China (Jiangxi and Yunnan).
Rediscovered in 2000, it is close to extinction in the wild.
It looks a little similar to the Yellow-throated Laughing
Thrush of northeast India to Myanma but has a blue rather
than pale grey crown and nape.
Male and female have similar plumage.
There are over 50 species of Laughing Thrush (Laughingthrush), vocal birds with the common name coming from their "laugh-like" call.
