Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, dark brown bulbul with dirty-looking olive-yellow underparts. Combination of dark eyes and fairly uniform coloration distinguish this species from other, dull brown bulbuls. Inhabits lowland and hill forests, often clambering in dense tangled vegetation at mid to lower levels. Social, but shy and skulking. Gives an ascending two-part call: “chee-ik”.
