The Dark-capped Bulbul (Afrikaans name, Swartoogtiptol) has a wide range and is found everywhere from manicured gardens to the savannah to the forest edge. It has a lovely song that sounds like “sweet-sweet-sweet-potato”. It feeds mainly on fruit, seeds and flowers. We found this one near the Satara Camp in Kruger National Park.

The dark-capped bulbul can be differentiated from the Cape Bulbul by its black eye.

They are such beautiful birds that are very vocal, making sure they will be seen.
