Nuthatches (Sittidae)

White-browed Nuthatch (Sitta victoriae) - HBW 13, p. 131

French: Sittelle du Victoria German: Weißbrauenkleiber Spanish: Trepador Birmano
Other common names: Victoria Nuthatch

Taxonomy: Sitta victoriae Rippon, 1904, Mount Victoria, Chin Hills, Myanmar.
Formerly considered conspecific with S. himalayensis, both having white in central tail, but otherwise morphologically distinct and both occur on Mt Victoria, although probably separated altitudinally. Small size and prominent white supercilium suggest possible affinity with S. yunnanensis. Monotypic.

Distribution: Mt Victoria and nearby Mindat (S Chin Hills) in W Myanmar.
