Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A relatively colorful greenbul with an olive-green back, yellowish underparts, and a rufous tail. Found in the understory and at middle levels of rainforest, usually in small flocks; readily joins mixed-species flocks. Very similar in appearance to Xavier’s Greenbul and best distinguished by voice, but is slightly smaller-billed and redder on the tail and uppertail coverts. Somewhat similar to Western Bearded and Yellow-bearded Greenbuls, but smaller, with much less contrast between the yellow throat and the rest of the underparts. The primary vocalization is a series of nasal notes that first speeds up, then slows down, unlike the more slowly delivered, nasal barking calls of Xavier’s Greenbul.
