Then there were birds... Babbler, National Zoological Park, Delhi


BABBLER common name for some members of the large, diversified family Timaliidae, passerine birds
found primarily in wooded areas of Asia, Africa, and Australia. Babblers have soft, fluffy plumage
and vary in coloring; various species resemble other birds, and five of the seven groups of
babblers are named on this basis—the wren babblers, the tit babblers, the laughing thrushes, and
the crow tits, or parrotbills. The wren tit, the only American babbler (found W of the Rockies), is
believed to be an offshoot of the crow tits. Other groups are called ground babblers, found in
Australia; jungle babblers, distributed in the Philippines; and rock fowl, found in W Africa.
Babblers are insectivorous and, as their name suggests, are noisy birds.
