White-crested Laughing Thrushes are native to the teak and bamboo-covered foothills of the Himalayan Mountains and can be found in Malaysia and Singapore. It is thought to only remain in small numbers in Malaysia due to trapping, but in Singapore it has become well-established and may be displacing native birds with similar ground-foraging habits that are threatened by habitat fragmentation. White-crested Laughing Thrushes are noisy, social birds who occasionally burst into loud calls that sound just like laughter. Its success as an invasive species is attributed, among other factors, to social, cooperative behavior, high flock densities, and being able to adapt to many different habitats including parks, gardens and degraded forest.
