The Red-tailed laughingthrush (Trochalopteron milnei) is a bird species in the Leiothrichidae family.

The red-tailed laughing thrush is mostly ash gray in color, with silvery cheeks, an orange head, and vivid red wings.

Their tail is similarly brilliant red, and it frequently flashes through the foliage as they travel.

Listen for its song, a characteristic whistled “woouuu-weee!” that is occasionally followed by rising, laughing “deeded!” notes.

The red-tailed laughing thrush ranges from southern China to Myanmar, Laos, northern Thailand, and Vietnam.

The red-tailed laughing thrush is usually found in wet tropical and subtropical woods, although it may also be found in temperate forests and high altitude grasslands and scrublands.

They may be found at elevations ranging from 610 to 2,500 meters.

This species feeds mostly on insects and tiny arthropods (beetles, centipedes, etc.) in its typical environment, but sometimes on berries and fruits (especially of Saurauja species).

The breeding season runs from April through June.

Both men and females build the nest, which is primarily constructed of grasses and bamboo leaves.

It is roughly 1 meter above ground level. The female lays 2–3 eggs, which are incubated for 17–18 days.

Both parents feed the chicks, and they depart the nest around 14–16 days.
