Babblers
This family contains a very large number of species, nearly all tropical or subtropical in distribution. They are termed "babblers" because thye make a lot of noise, and many of the odd sounds and chatterings emanating from dense thickets or the undergrowth of the jungle can safely be attributed to babbler of some sort. For they are poor flyers as a rule, non-migatory, with short and rounded wings, and they spend much of their time on or near the ground, often in small parties. (Smythies, The Birds of Borneo, 1999)
