Abstract:The vocal behavior of the white-browed laughing thrush (Garrulax sannio oblectans) during the breeding season was studied in Nanchong City, Sichuan Province with spectrographic analysis from March to October 2008. The characteristics of vocalization and behaviors of the white-browed laughing thrush were studied. The results showed that there are several calls, including territory call, expulsion call, responsive call, courtship call, mating call, feeding call, exclaiming call, warning call, terrible call, and cluster feeding call.
