Paradoxornis brunneus ricketti

The Yunnan parrotbill (Sinosuthora brunnea ricketti) is a parrotbill in the Old World babbler family. This 10 cm long parrotbill is endemic to China, breeding in northwest Yunnan.

It is often considered conspecific with the brown-winged parrotbill, Sinosuthora brunnea, (sometimes the vinous-throated parrotbill, Sinosuthora webbiana). Its behaviour is described as similar to that of vinous-throated.[1]
