Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Handsome and unmistakable; olive-yellow wings, black head, white throat, and black-scaled white underparts. Predominantly found in hilly broadleaf evergreen forest, only occasionally and very localized in lowlands. Often undertakes local movements. Generally gleans fruits from mid-levels up into the canopy. Unlike many bulbuls, does not have a vibrant song: gives occasional high-pitched chirps, chips, whistles, and short trills.
