    Default Nonggang Babbler

    James Eaton/ Birdtour Asia has kindly posted a couple of shots of Nonggang Babbler in the World rarities page. This species was only discovered in 2005 and officially described in 2008 from just the one site in China - Nonggang NNR, Guangxi.

    Hi Brian,

    thanks for posting the pics

    Well done Jamesy - nice to see a field shot of the 'gangbang' babbler at last

    in hand shots here

    and another lower quality shot here

    superficially similar to Sooty Babbler and apparently quite terrestrial.

    looks like a nice bird

    The little things they make me so happy, all I want to do is live by the sea...
