The Yellow-throated Bulbul is a species of bulbul endemic to southern peninsular India.
The habitat of the species is rocky, scrub covered hills mostly in the Eastern Ghats and central peninsular India but also in some places in the Western Ghats.
This bird is usually shy and hidden within scrub and is usually detected by its sudden cackling outbursts of call which are similar to those of the White-browed Bulbul. They feed on berries of various scrub plant species including Lantana camara, Securinega leucopyrus, Toddalia asiatica, Erythroxylon monogynum, Solanum indicum, Santalum album, Ziziphus, Ficus benghalensis, Ficus nervosa, Ficus montana, Canthium dicoccum and Phyllanthus reticulata. They also feed on small insects.
