    Comments: These two species are hard to differentiate but by voice and appearance it seems the elevation break is around 800m or so, we had some presumed GC Bulbuls in reasonably disturbed forest below the intact forest. A bit lower we had Madagascar Bulbuls exclusively.

    Comments: In the heath, 1600m and up. Bill smaller, quite pink on females, not the horn color depicted in the most recent guide.

  25. Number observed: 25

    Comments: From about 700m up to 1400m in plantations and good forest. Females with dark horn colored bills, males with red heads, some with neatly defined borders, some a bit splotchy. On some males black behind eye was apparent. Bills large with Curved culmens. Voice is distinctive which helped us hone in on which field marks can be trusted vs the artwork.
