Garrulax canorus | Chinese hwamei

Introduced

Other Names: melodious laughingthrush, 画眉

The hwamei, or melodious laughing-thrush, is originally from central China. First released on Oʻahu as escapees during a fire. They were then purposefully introduced to the other islands. A secretive brown forest bird with a white eye-line, it is rarely seen but conspicuous by its long melodic song.
