Pomatorhinus ruficollis musicus

The Taiwan scimitar babbler (Pomatorhinus musicus) is a species of bird in the family Timaliidae, the Old World babblers. It is endemic to Taiwan. It was formerly treated as a subspecies of the streak-breasted scimitar babbler. Its population is declining, but not rapidly enough for it to be considered vulnerable.[1]
