Large dull bulbul with a bright white throat and a low, bushy crest. Gray-brown above and smudgy white below, with a grayish wash on the breast. Note distinctive squared-off dark patch between eye, throat, and bill base. Mainland birds have fairly dark upperparts, while Bornean birds are paler above, with yellowish-green wings and tails. Primarily inhabits montane and submontane broadleaf evergreen forests, though occasionally also in lowland areas. Sociable, often occurring in both single- and mixed-species flocks, particularly around fruiting trees. Not very musical, but vocally varied, giving nasal, plaintive “wheers”, high-pitched “deees”, and repetitive, colorless “djeer, djeer, djeer.”
The cinereous bulbul (Hemixos cinereus) is a species of songbird in the bulbul family, Pycnonotidae. It is found in Southeast Asia and Indonesia. The cinereous bulbul was originally classified in the genus Iole. It was formerly considered as conspecific with the ashy bulbul. [Source: eBird & Wikipedia]
