A well-marked bulbul with a bushy crest. Olive-green above with a pale yellow throat and extensive white streaks on a dark breast and pale belly. A foothill and submontane specialist found in broadleaf forests, both evergreen and deciduous. Forages in the forest canopy, often in the company of other bulbuls. Somewhat similar to Mountain Bulbul, but has a bushier, more erect crest, darker upperparts, and obvious streaking on the underparts. Generally not very vocal; gives various chirps, warbles, and chips, often strung together into a loose “song” with short, distinct phrases.
