Streak-breasted Scimitar BabblersThe scimitar-babblers are birds in the genera Pomatorhinus, Xiphirhynchus and Jabouilleia of the large Old World babbler family of passerines. These are birds of tropical Asia, with the greatest number of species occurring in hills of the Himalayas.

This group is not strongly migratory, and most species have short rounded wings, and a weak flight. More
