Vinous-throated parrotbill visits Beijing Botanical Garden

The vinous-throated parrotbill is a species of parrotbill. It's usually found in China, Japan, Mongolia, and Vietnam. The bird is quite small and has a long tail and is highly social, and is often seen in groups. Its lively and bold nature makes them almost unafraid of people, and they are frequently seen jumping from tree to tree. They generally fly in a short distance at a low altitude.

Beijing Botanical Garden, located on the northwest outskirts of Beijing, is one of the most popular parks in the city and is home to many bird species. Here are some photos of a vinous-throated parrotbill clicked in the garden.
