Abstract: Olive-winged bulbul (Pycnonotus plumosus) and cream-vented bulbul (P. simplex) were found to be sedentary non-territorial species with home range sizes of 0.29-7.23 ha during the breeding season. Range sizes were not significantly different between species. Indices of available food sources (or food plants) within the home ranges of both species were also not significantly different. More studies need to be done with larger samples over longer periods and with birds of different ages, sex and breeding status to better understand the factors influencing home range size in these two species. Ranging studies are important as they help determine conservation measures to be taken in the light of shrinking native habitats in South-East Asia.
