Genus GRAUCALUS

The genus Graucalus differs from Campophaga in having a very long pointed wing and a relatively more massive bill. The two Indian species are birds of comparatively large size. The sexes differ in colour. These birds are arboreal, frequenting only the well-wooded portions of the country or forests. They feed on insects which they pick off leaves and their notes are mellow and pleasant.
