Styan's or Taiwan Bulbul

Pycnonotus [taivanus or formosae] (= Pycnonotus taivanus) Styan, FW 1893

Styan's bulbul is an endemic species of bulbul found 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 Chinese or light-vented bulbul. The two species' ranges overlap in several areas, partly because birds of the latter species have been released for Buddhist ceremonies. The species has already become extinct in Yilan County (Taiwan). Source: Wikipedia
