|Slaty-bellied Tesia Tesia olivea|
Mo Chu Valley, Punakha, Bhutan
|It is found in dense
undergrowth of evergreen forest normally close to water and is usually very difficult to
see far less photograph. Although these photos are not great
there aren't too many photos of this species.
It is a small, mainly ground-dwelling warbler with an extremely short tail and long legs. The crown and nape are yellowish green and the remaining upperparts are a duller olive-green. Underparts are slaty-grey and the bill is dark brown above but bright orange on the lower mandible as can be seen in photo 2.
There are recordings on xeno-canto and additional material is available via Avibase.
