Paradoxornis ruficeps

The rufous-headed parrotbill or greater rufous-headed parrotbill (Psittiparus bakeri) is a parrotbill often placed with the Old World babblers (family Timaliidae) or in a distinct family Paradoxornithidae, but it actually seems to belong to the Sylviidae.

It is found in Eastern Himalaya, Bangladesh, China, India,[1] Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

It was formerly considered conspecific with the white-breasted parrotbill (P. ruficeps).
