The Green Shrike-babbler (Pteruthius xanthochlorus) is a bird species traditionally considered an aberrant Old World babbler and placed in the family Timaliidae. But as it seems, it belongs to an Asian offshoot of the American vireos and may well belong in the Vireonidae. Indeed, since long it was noted that their habits resemble those of vireos, but this was believed to be the result of convergent evolution. It is found in Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Vietnam. More
