Silver-eared Mesia

Another species of Timaliidae family in high land forests, Silver-eared Mesia (Leiothrix argentauris), was taken at Fraser Hill, Pahang. 

Silver-eared Mesias are distributed from the Eastern Himalayas to Western China, ranging South, down through Indo-China to Malaysia and Sumatra. They also reside in North, Northeast Indian subcontinent, Southwest China and Southeast Tibet. 

They live in bushes on the edge of broadleaved forest, secondary growth, jungle and scrub at elevations of 500-2,000m.
