Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small gracile bulbul with brown upperparts, dirty-yellow underparts, and surprised-looking large dark eye accentuated by yellow eyering. Somewhat like a babbler in proportions and behavior; forages, often with mixed flocks, at lower and middle strata of forests. Inhabits mature and advanced secondary forests from lowlands up to around 1,000 meters. Scolds “chee-chuu” repetitively and gives soft ascending whistles.
