The
Philippine Bulbul (Hypsipetes philippinus) is a songbird species in the
bulbul family (Pycnonotidae). It is often placed in the genus Ixos, but
is better retained in Hypsipetes as long as this is not entirely merged
into Ixos, as it is quite closely related to the type species of
Hypsipetes, the Black Bulbul (H. leucocephalus).[1]

It is endemic
to the Philippines. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical
moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests;
on Mount Kitanglad on Mindanao for example it is abundant in any kind
of primary forest at least between 500 and 2,250 m ASL.[2]

Fledglings
of the Philippine Bulbul were recorded on Mindanao in late April, but
the breeding season seems to be prolonged as females with ripe ovarian
follicles were still found in April and May. Territorial songs are heard
at lower altitudes as late as May, while further upslope the birds are
silent at that time of year and presumably engaged in breeding activity.
The Besra (Accipiter virgatus) has been recorded as a predator of young
Philippine Bulbuls, and this or other goshawks might also catch adult
birds.[3]

A common and adaptable bird as long as sufficient forest remains, it is not considered a threatened species by the IUCN.[4]
