A medium-sized bird of lowland and foothill forest and edge on Palawan and neighboring islands. Yellow below with an olive-green back, brown wings and tail, a gray cheek, and a white throat. Note the fairly stout bill and slightly flattened bushy crest. Somewhat similar to Palawan Babbler, but has a yellow belly, an obvious crest, and dark eyes. Voice consists of three descending high-pitched notes, or else a rattling trill followed by dry staccato notes.
