Geokichla citrina is known as Orange-headed Thrush, or locally called Murai Belanda or Murai Dada Oren. This is due to the orange colour appearing from its head to its breast. Geokichla citrina belongs to the family Turdidae and can grow up to 23 cm and weight until 67 g. Geokichla citrina can be found near understory of moist deciduous forest and evergreen forest, mixed secondary and bamboo thickets. The coverage range of this species is from the Himalayas, South China through to Southeast Asia including Malaysia. The diet of this species includes insect, invertebrates like worms and snails, as well as the fruits of Macaranga sp. Until now, this species is listed as Least Concern in the IUCN status, yet, the population is subject to a declining trend owing to the cage-bird trade and continuing forest loss (IUCN, 2016).
