|Light-vented Bulbul, Pycnonotus sinensis|
The Light-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus sinensis), also known as the Chinese Bulbul, is a bird and a member of the bulbul family.
The particular characteristic is the large white patch covering the nape and the sides of its black head. It also sings very brightly and variably with a 'cha-ko-lee...cha-ko-lee...' sound.
In Hong Kong, the Light-vented Bulbul is abundant in lightly wooded areas, cultivated land and shrubland, whereas the Red-whiskered Bulbul is the common bulbul of suburbs and urban parks. In Taiwan, however, the Light-vented Bulbul dominates all of these habitats, though it is replaced along the east coast by Styan's Bulbul.
