I had this bird for a long time and I can’t see to identify it cross-referencing Bulbuls and other birds. It may seem similar to others and I had been believing that this one is a Bulbul. Well, I just have to ask somebody and in just a matter of minutes, I had the name. Thanks to Khun Sompong Paan Nuamsawat for giving me the name; he has been forthcoming of the bird locations that he posted on Facebook and having these kind of people makes it easier and more fun in birding rather than searching relentlessly.

This is quite a bird to watch, I did not have much time with this bird to observe since it came with other Babblers as I was in Baan Song Nok hide last August of 2016. I kept the bird for a long time hoping that I would accidentally identify it referring to bird posts on Facebook. Now that I have a Fulvetta I am well pleased.
