Meet The Yellow-throated Bulbul

The yellow-throated bulbul (Pycnonotus xantholaemus) is a species of songbird with a long tail and short rounded wings. The bill is slightly elongated and slightly hooked at the end. Body plumage tends to be olive-grey above with a yellow throat, under tail coverts, and tail tips. The head is yellow while the breast and belly have a grey wash. Legs are also short and grayish-black or blue.

The closest resembling species is the White-browed Bulbul but this has a supercilium and lacks the yellow throat.

Both males and females have similar colored plumage.

The Yellow-throated Bulbul is endemic to southern peninsular India. Where it is locally distributed in southern Andhra Pradesh, eastern Karnataka, Goa, Orissa, eastern Kerala, and northern Tamil Nadu.

They like to live around rocky, scrub-covered hills mostly in the Eastern Ghats and central peninsular India but also in some places in the Western Ghats. This bird is usually shy and hidden within scrubby areas, usually detected by its sudden cackling outbursts of call.

They feed on insects and the berries of various scrub plant species.

The breeding season of this species is May to July. The nest is built in the fork of a small tree. Two eggs are laid within, which hatch in 20 days. The chicks become fledglings around 13 days later.

This species distribution is highly fragmented and populations are very local, making hilly habitats of very special conservation concern. Many of these hill forests are threatened by granite quarrying, forest fires, and grazing. It has vanished from many sites where it was earlier known.
