Garrulax sukatschewi

A good Chinese endemic, Snowy-cheeked Laughingthrush was originally collected in the 1880s by M.Beresovsky in the Min Mountains of northern Sichuan. It is named after V.P. Sukatchev, his financial supporter.

You can still see them at Wanglang National Nature Reserve, where I took this pic. last week.

We're off to India tomorrow, and my normal, patchy disservice may resume in mid-December !
