[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Silver-eared Mesia (Mesia argentauris) is a smallish babbler in bright, neat colours, black on head with glistening silver ear-coverts, yellow breast, and red wing patch and tail base.

After breeding season forms parties of 5–30 or more individuals, often associating with bird waves (even during breeding season), which typically include other babblers. Usually keeps to bushes in more open forest, but sometimes ascends quite high, 4–5 m, in canopy. Occasionally makes flycatching sallies after escaping insects.

All in all lovely birds and not that shy like other babblers.
