White-throated Laughingthrush Garrulax albogularis in Imawbum, Kachin State: a first record for Myanmar
- Between 1 December 2016 and 15 April 2017, during camera-trap surveys in the proposed Imawbum National Park in Kachin State, northern Myanmar (Meyer et al. 2017) we recorded White-throated Laughingthrush Garrulax albogularis on 16 occasions, the first time it has been recorded in the country (Plate 1). The area lies along the Chinese border and connects with the Gaolingongshan National Park in China; it is expected to be gazette as Imawbum National Park by the Myanmar government in 2019 (Meyer et al. 2017). Whitethroated Laughingthrush is common and widespread in Nepal and Bhutan, locally frequent in India, fairly common to locally common in China and uncommon in Vietnam (Collar & Robson 2019). As far as we are aware, the species has never been recorded previously from Myanmar.
