Mountain Bulbul

Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS came across a Mountain Bulbul (Ixos mcclellandii peracensis) on 19th June 2015 along a public road running through primary montane forest at 1,700m ASL in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

The Mountain Bulbul was with an insect (a cicada?) prey for fledglings (top, above).

The bulbul was also feeding on Lantana (above, below). Amar have seen lowland bulbuls feeding on this fruit but usually the ripe ones (purplish).

  1. Hello, I saw 2 beautiful big birds making a big noise outside my condo 8 woodleigh close today. They looked like hornbills, so I googled Singapore hornbills and it showed up as “oriental hornbills” – exactly what I saw! Very cool!!
