Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, and Vietnam.

Subtropical or tropical mountainous forests.

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.
