Pygmy Babbler

The Mindanao Pygmy-babbler is a bird species endemic to the Philippines. The genus Sterrhoptilus was formerly included in Stachyris and is usually placed in the family Timaliidae. It is a close relative of the white-eyes however, and like these might arguably be placed in a distinct family Zosteropidae.

Pygmy Babbler of the local Samar race, which is really different from the Mindanao race and will certainly be split some day if current trends in taxonomy prevail. As far as other rarities are concerned, ROH had a really good day out on his own, his eagle-eyes spotting a Japanese Night Heron and a Visayan Wattled Broadbill along an obscure side-trail, while the rest of us indulged in wank wildlife-watching along the main trail.
