Thanks Grahame. I did think of Buff-barred, but always thought Buff-barred had 2 wing bars and there only appears to be one, especially on the 2nd photo

Grahame,

Would Davison's show a similar amount of white on the outer-tail feathers?

To quote Williamson (1962) regarding pulcher 'Three outer tail feathers white with dark brown wedge extending two-thirds of the way along the outer web of outer feather from its tip, and half-way along outer webs of penultimate and third feathers, the last also having a broad dark brown tip on inner web'

So, even more white than davisioni but like that species the white is typically concealed when tail is closed and best viewed from underneath. http://orientalbirdimages.org/search.php?Bird_Image_ID=71386&Bird_ID=1832&Bird_Family_ID=&Location=
