The White-spectacled Warbler is distributed in the eastern Himalayas and northern Myanmar with scattered populations in central and southeastern China and in southern Vietnam. It is found in the undergrowth of mature tropical forest where it feeds on insects. 

There are a number of similar species but I believe that the identification of this bird is correct. It shows a grey crown-stripe surrounded by black lateral stripes with grey on the sides of the crown and on the nape. The white eye-ring is broken above the eye towards the  front. Upperparts are green with a narrow yellow wing-bar while below is bright yellow.

There are recordings on xeno-canto and additional information is available via Avibase
