SPECIES INFO

The Himalayan Cutia (Cutia nipalensis) is a bird species in the family Timaliidae. Its scientific name ultimately means "the khutya from Nepal", as Cutia is is derived from the Nepali name for these birds, and nipalensis is Latin for "from Nepal". This species inhabits the Himalayan region. Previously the genus Cutia was monotypic, but the Vietnamese Cutia, for long lumped with the Himalayan birds as subspecies, has been recently raised to full species status as C. legalleni.

Its natural habitat are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. The Himalayan Cutia is not considered threatened by the IUCN, retaining its pre-split status as a Species of Least Concern.
