Straw-headed Bulbul Pycnonotus zeylanicus

Critically Endangered

Extant (resident): Brunei Darussalam; Indonesia; Malaysia; Myanmar

Extant (breeding): Singapore

The Straw-headed Bulbul occupies successional habitats bordering rivers, streams, marshes and other wet areas, where seasonal flooding prevents the establishment of climax communities. These include secondary and disturbed primary evergreen forest, plantations, gardens and cultivation fringe, scrub and, locally, reedbeds and mangroves. This species is declining extremely rapidly across their range as a result of trapping of wild birds for the cage-bird trade, compounded by habitat loss within their rather specific habitat type. Therefore, the species is evaluated as Critically Endangered.

Straw-headed Bulbuls are critically endangered in #Brunei #Indonesia #Malaysia #Myanmar due to the #pettrade and habitat loss #deforestation for #palmoil. Support this beautiful bird with your weekly shop and #Boycott4Wildlife

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices
