Sooty-headed Bulbul

Pycnonotus aurigaster germani


the germani race in Cambodia has a yellow vent but is otherwise similar to the nominate race in Hong Kong.


always seen in pairs or groups at this location at the Nature Lodge, Sen Menorom, Mondulkiri, Cambodia. Loved their chatty vocalizations. Second growth forest, broad leaved evergreen forest of the eastern hills of Cambodia.


I call photo #1 "Why does she keep taking soo many photos of us today?! Photo #3 shows the yellow vent that is diagnostic for this race. Other races have red vent.
