Babblers are in a very large passerine family called Timalilidae. Most of the birds are found in Southeast Asia.  Babblers range from very small to very large. They have long, strong legs, short wings and stout bills.  Most are shades of brown; there is little difference between sexes.  The juvenile’s plumage is similar to the adult’s.  Their family name comes from the way they vocalize with each other.  They usually can be found in small groups and they tend to stay close together, roosting and preening.
