The White-throated laughing thrush lives in flocks of 6 to 15 individuals. They eat insects, berries, and seeds. They were first described in 1836, but not a lot of information is available about this species.
They use grass and leaves to build a cup-shaped nest.
Their large range and stable population led the White-throated laughing thrush to be rated “Least Concern” on the IUCN red list. Their total population has never been counted, but is estimated to be greater than 10,000 individuals.
