The Streak-breasted Bulbul or Mottle-breasted Bulbul (Ixos siquijorensis) is a songbird species in the bulbul family (Pycnonotidae). It is one of the species of Ixos that might warrant inclusion in the genus Hypsipetes – as long as this is kept separate from Ixos – as it may be a close relative of the Philippine Bulbul (H. philippinensis), which in turn is closely related to the type species of Hypsipetes, the Black Bulbul (H. leucocephalus). It is endemic to the Philippines, where its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist shrubland. It is threatened by habitat loss.
