The yellowish bulbul (Hypsipetes everetti) is a species of songbird in the bulbul family, Pycnonotidae.

Taxonomy and systematics[edit]

The yellowish bulbul was originally described in the genus Criniger and later placed in the genus Ixos before being re-classified to the genus Hypsipetes in 2010.[3] Alternate names for the streak-breasted bulbul include Everett's bulbul, plain-throated bulbul, and yellow-washed bulbul. The scientific name commemorates British colonial administrator and zoological collector Alfred Hart Everett.


Three subspecies are currently recognized:

  • Camiguin bulbul (H. e. catarmanensis) - Rand & Rabor, 1969: Classified by some authorities as a separate species. Found on Camiguin Sur (off northern Mindanao)
  • Sulu bulbul (H. e. haynaldi) - (Blasius, W, 1890): Originally described as a separate species in the genus Criniger. Found in the Sulu Archipelago (south-western Philippines)
