Clues:

a. Although often identified as a bird of the forests of the Western Ghats, the Malabar Whistling Thrush has a wide range going eastwards along the Satpura into Orissa.

b. The Malabar Whistling Thrush’s piercing call carries far over its preferred well-wooded habitats, usually around streams.

c. The moniker “Whistling Schoolboy” is well deserved, and strikes a chord anytime a bird is heard singing its wonderful song.

Congrats to everyone who answered correctly!
