Streaked Bulbul
Photographer : © Amar-Singh HSS
Location :Dense primary forest, Kledang-Sayong Forest Reserve, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia
Date : 26 August 2012
English synonyms:Green-backed Bulbul, Common Streaked Bulbul
Bird Family :Pycnonotidae - Asian bulbuls, finchbills & malia
Red Data Status :Near Threatened
Remarks :Some bulbuls are hard to spot as they prefer the high canopy of the primary forest. This includes the Streaked Bulbul. A rather dull olive-green bulbul above with streaks on its breast and a longish beak. Its larger size helps identification as does its rather odd calls that almost sound like those of a flowerpecker.

Saw a pair feeding on some fruit with many other birds (Ashy Bulbuls, Red-eyed Bulbuls, Leafbirds, Flowerpecker, Sunbirds, etc.), high in the canopy. - Amar
