Bird Family :Pycnonotidae - Asian Bulbuls, Finchbills & Malia
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :A deeper forest bulbul, often alone; here seen feeding and singing. The subspecies A. p. diardi has a clear/noticeable yellow tip to the tail. Although described as having no crest, Davison (1999) describes is as “absence of a crest is diagnostic”, this is not that precise. They have the ability to raise crest feathers, and often do so.
