Golden-breasted Fulvetta

Traditionally united with the other fulvettas in Alcippe in the old world babbler family , it is actually closer to the typical warblers and hence placed in the Sylviidae even in their new, more restricted sense, in a monotypic genus Lioparus.

Golden-breasted Fulvettas come by in a cluster of bamboo. Among them was a single Broad-billed Warbler seen by Sujan but not by us. White-browed Fulvettas were seen at several locations. We also saw one very confiding female Dark-rumped Rosefinch on the trail. We returned to Lava, where Sujan made arrangements for us to transfer to the 4-star Silver Oaks hotel in Kalimpong. This added to the cost of the trip (an extra US 50 per night), but it was worthwhile. More
