[Ornithology • 2013] Emei Shan Liocichla Liocichla omeiensis: Population, Behavior and Conservation | endemic to mountain ranges in south-central Sichuan & extreme north-east Yunnan, China

Endemic to China, the Emei Shan Liocichla (Liocichla omeiensis) is considered globally vulnerable by the IUCN because of its small, declining population and fragmented range. The species has been recorded in only a few mountainous forests in south-central Sichuan and in the extreme northeast of Yunnan Province. We summarized the basic eco-biology information on its habitat, breeding, winter habits and behavior, voice, population status, research and conservation.
