Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler

Mixornis flavicollis

The Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler, known scientifically as Mixornis flavicollis, is a charming avian species belonging to the Timaliidae family. This bird is distinguished by its subtle yet attractive plumage, which is endemic to the verdant island of Java.

Identification Tips

When observing the Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler, one should look for its defining characteristics: the grey cheeks that give this bird its name, as well as a yellowish collar that graces its neck, providing a delicate contrast against its predominantly brown and grey feathers.

Habitat

The natural abode of this species is the subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest. Here, amidst the dense foliage and the dappled sunlight, the Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler thrives, flitting through the understory with grace.

Distribution

This bird is a true Javanese local, found nowhere else but on the island of Java. Its presence is a testament to the rich biodiversity that the Indonesian archipelago harbors.

Conservation status

The IUCN Red List has classified the Grey-cheeked Tit-Babbler as Least Concern. This status indicates that, for now, the species is not at immediate risk of decline, allowing birdwatchers the continued pleasure of its observation.

Great app for learning Birds
I’ve been using the app for a couple of months and love it....Someone said it’s like a real life Pokémon Go for birds. They’re not far off! It’s something that the family can do that gets you out and about. Well worth downloading no matter your age.

Great app for beginner twitchers
I’ve had a passion of photographing birds for a long time now but have only just gotten into proper birdwatching, and this app is brilliant for those just getting started. There is a great sense of community among users and the app is very easy to use and professional. Awesome app altogether

A Friendly Place
I love using the bird app, I have a pretty good knowledge of birds. But I do have some gaps in it, so it’s nice to have a safe space to check on a sighting to confirm the species. It’s really enjoyable and I love the badges you can collect. It’s like a real life Pokémon go.

Awesome Birding Community
I absolutely love the community aspect of this app. The app is so user friendly and has fun interactive challenges to get you out birding. I’ve tried others but since I’ve started using Birda I’ve not gone back!
