Steere's Liocichla

The Steere's Liocichla is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

considered whether any populations of Steere's Liocichla might be of special management concern for conservation efforts. Methods Sampling and laboratory methods A total of 122 individuals was sampled from 13 populations located throughout the breeding range of the species (Fig. 1; Table 1). Birds were caught during the breeding season (March to September) by mist net and 50 μl of blood was collected via brachial venipuncture. More

The Steere's liocichla has a body length of 17-19cm and a wing length of 7-8cm. Both males and females have the same coloring: grayish-black heads with yellow foreheads; olive green backs; grayish-black rumps; black tail feathers with white tips; and olive yellow faces, sides of their necks, chests, abdomens, and the base of their flight feathers.

Steere's Liocichla (Liocichla steerii) is a montane, resident bird species endemic to Taiwan. It inhabits forest edge and secondary growth from approximately 1000 m to 3000 m. Its dispersal ability was inferred to be low , and high song diversity also suggests dispersal may be low . Therefore, Steere's Liocichla is an ideal avian candidate to have developed the same genetic structure observed in potentially less vagile vertebrates. More
