This bulbul qualifies as Endangered because it has a very small, severely fragmented and declining range, and it is predicted to undergo a very rapid population reduction in the immediate future based on the decline observed in the past and a decline in the extent of its remaining forest habitat.

Hypsipetes siquijorensis Collar and Andrew (1988)
c.22 cm. Long-tailed and rather drab bulbul. Mid-brown head and upperparts, brownish-grey underparts, paler and greyer on throat and upper breast, with rather broad but poorly defined dark brown streaking on breast. Race siquijorensis has conspicuous dark cap, contrasting with rest of upperparts. Race cinereiceps has duller cap which does not contrast strongly with rest of body. Dark brown or blackish bill and legs. Similar spp. Philippine Bulbul Hypsipetes philippinus is larger, and has longer tail and browner, more uniform plumage. Voice The three subspecies differ in many of their vocalisations (A. Pierce verbally 2001). All three have territorial songs consisting of various phrases repeated in rapid 3 second bursts, e.g. for I. s. cinereceps, song described as hi-ho-hi-ghrrek-ghrrreghk-si-rrediyeray!. Other calls include varied, short chee or chree notes, and "squeaky toy" sounds (A. Pierce verbally 2001). Hints Frequently encountered in vociferous pairs.
