April 14, 2017 – Styan’s Bulbul or Taiwan Bulbul (Pycnonotus taivanus)

These bulbuls are found along much of the eastern coast of Taiwan. They eat fruits and flowers, along with some insects, spending most of their time alone or in pairs during the breeding season and forming large flocks during the rest of the year. Females build cup-shaped nests from stems, leaves, and grasses and pairs often raise two broods a year. They are classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN due to hybridization with the closely related Chinese Bulbul, along with habitat loss.
