Genus KELAARTIA

The single species of Kelaartia is peculiar to Ceylon. It is characterized by the pointed feathers constituting the supercilium, and by the rounded feathers on the crown, the two forming a strong contrast.

The tarsus is in this genus rather longer than is usual among the Bulbuls, but it does not exceed in Length the middle toe and claw.

The Yellow-eared Bulbul appears to be a denizen of the forests of the hilly parts of the island.
