Genus MINLA

The genus Minla, as I restrict it, contains one Indian bird of pleasing plumage, found on the Himalayas and on some of the hill-ranges of Assam.

In Minla the bill is very similar in shape to that of Cutia, but very much smaller. The head is subcrested, the wing rounded, and the tail, which is as long as the wing, slightly graduated.
