This Secondary Area is defined by the range of Yellow-throated Bulbul Pycnonotus xantholaemus, which is recorded from the states of Karnataka, Andhra Praesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and possibly Orissa in southern India (see map, p. 400). It is uncommon and patchily distributed on boulder-strewn hills with vegetation ranging from tropical thorn scrub and dry deciduous forest to moist deciduous forest between about 600 and 1,200 m (Ali and Ripley 1987, Subramanya et al. 1993, 1995). There is evidence that it has become locally extinct as a result of the total clearance of vegetation and quarrying, while excessive wood-cutting, cattle-grazing and the quarrying of hillocks threaten its survival at other sites, so there is a need to improve protection of its habitats (Subramanya et al. 1993, 1995).
