Binomial name: Alophoixus pallidus, Robert Swinhoe, 1870
The puff-throated bulbul (Alophoixus pallidus) is a species of songbird in the Pycnonotidae family. It is found in Cambodia, China, Laos, Burma, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
It is a large (23 cm long) bulbul with olive upperparts, yellow underparts, and puffy white throat feathers. It is similar in appearance to the white-throated bulbul but with duller underparts. It has black feet and brown iris and bill. Males and females are visually indistinguishable.
The puff-throated bulbul is a regular but not an obligate cooperative breeder. Groups can comprise one or more breeding pairs and breed either cooperatively or non-cooperatively. In cases or multiple breeding pairs in a single territory, the pairs nest separately. The female builds the nest and incubates and broods the young. Males and helpers aid in feeding the nestlings and fledglings. Nests are open cups typically located in the understorey.
