Range DescriptionSitta formosa has a broad range encompassing Bhutan, north-east India, west, north and east Myanmar, south-east Yunnan, China, East (Vogel et al. 2003) and West Tonkin, north Vietnam, and north and central Laos, with a few records from extreme north-west Thailand. It is rare and very locally distributed throughout this range. Recent records suggest that Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh in India, north Myanmar and Laos support the most important populations.
