Straw-headed Bulbul Pycnonotus zeylanicus
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.
