Grey-cheeked Fulvetta, Alcippe morrisonia

The Grey-cheeked Fulvetta (Alcippe morrisonia) is a species of bird in the Pellorneidae family. Many bird list have this bird as a Yunnan Fulvetta and you will never be able to find the Grey-cheeked Fulvetta.

Thanks to andyb39 at Birdforum I got it clear about the different names

It's entered as Yunnan Fulvetta. The Grey-cheeked complex was split into several species some time back but HBW for one is proposing lumping all forms pending further research.
