Genus MINLA

The genus Minla, as restricted by Oates and adopted here, contains one Indian bird of pleasing plumage, found on the Himalayas and hill-ranges of Assam. In Minla the bill is slender, curved, notched and pointed and about half the length of the head; the tail is as long as the wing and slightly graduated. The head, as in practically all the birds of this Subfamily, is not actually crested but the feathers of the crown are very full and more or less erectile.
