Kerala Laughingthrush (Strophocincla fairbanki), listed in my guide "Birds of Southern India" as Grey-breasted Laughingthrush. It is endemic to the Western Ghats. Spotted in a beautiful patch of countryside near Munnar, Kerala, during a morning walk.

On this second picture we can easily understand why it was named Grey-breasted Laughingthrush.

Munnar region, India.

Not baited. Not called in.
