This bird belongs to a family known as “bulbuls”, named after words for cheerful singing.

A stubby beak and namesake white collar make it easier to recognize from the other species of bulbul. These monogamous birds are often found in bamboo but nest in trees. Dining primarily on fruit, they will also eat seeds and insects.
