The brown-capped babbler (Pellorneum fuscocapillus) is a member of the family Pellorneidae.
The brown-capped babbler is a smallish to medium-sized babbler, at 16 cm including its long tail. It is brown above and rich cinnamon below. It has a dark brown crown.
Brown-capped babblers have short dark bills. Their food is mainly insects. They can be difficult to observe in the dense vegetation they prefer, but like other babblers, these are noisy birds, and their characteristic calls are often the best indication that these birds are present.
