Alternative name: White-cheeked Bulbul
Sometimes called White-cheeked Bulbul; see note in Taxonomy section.
This species is distinguished by its black head, white cheeks and yellow patch under tail. Size: 20 cm
This species has three or four subspecies depending on authority: leucogenys, mesopotamiae (including dacylys ?), and humii. The species has recently been split from White-eared Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucotis); the pre-split species used to be called White-cheeked Bulbul, a name sometimes still used for Himalayan Bulbul.
Notice that the following Gallery search may find both this species and the White-eared Bulbul, because the scientific name stayed the same as the pre-split name.
