SPECIES INFO

The Taiwan Bulbul or Styan's Bulbul Pycnonotus taivanus is an endemic species of bulbul that lives in eastern and southern Taiwan. Though common in some areas, it has been listed as a species vulnerable to extinction. Its decline has been caused by habitat destruction and hybridisation with the closely related Light-vented Bulbul Pycnonotus sinensis; the two species ranges overlap in several areas, and Light-vented Bulbuls are also released for Buddhist ceremonies.

Though declining, Taiwan Bulbuls are still fairly common, and can even be found in front of beach resorts
