SPECIES INFO

The Brown-throated Tree-creeper or Sikkim Treecreeper (Certhia discolor) is a species of bird in the treecreeper family.

It is found in Bhutan, China, India, Laos, Burma, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Its natural habitats are temperate forests and subtropical or tropical moist montanes.

The form C. d. manipurensis of southern Manipur and southwestern Burma has has a rich cinnamon throat and breast, and molecular evidence suggests that this is best treated as a separate species, the Manipur Treecreeper C. manipurensis Hume, 1850.
