Bird Photography….The Red-Whiskered Bulbul

Red-Whiskered Bulbul

The Red-Whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus), or Crested Bulbul , is a passerine bird found in Asia. It is a member of the Bulbul family found in Tropical Asia in most.

It has been introduced in many tropical areas of the world where populations have established themselves. It feeds on fruits and small insects.

The Red-Whiskered Bulbul was originally described with the Shrikes within the genus Lanius in 1758 by Carl Linnaeus .

Hybrids have been noted in captivity with the red-vented, white-eared, white-spectacled, black-capped and Himalayan bulbuls.

Red-Whiskered Bulbuls perch conspicuously on trees and have a loud three or four note call. They are very common in hill forests and urban gardens within its range.

It is included in the list of the world’s 💯 worst invasive alien species.

Just I have tried to compile a little bit about this melodious bird/the singing Queen (with clicks from my rooftop) singing to the tunes of Nature and why not we all try to preserve our Planet with utmost care so as to prevent these bird species from extinctions.

Dedicated to all Bird lovers and Bloggers across the Globe.
