  2. What a stunning specimen! I lived in South Africa for a long time and saw many bulbuls but they were more of the brown variety with a bit of yellow near the tail. Wonder what Darwin would think about this distribution… 😉

  3. Yeah , they are Stunning ,this one is The Red-vented Bulbul ,The nominate race is found in southern India . and Sexes are similar in plumage, but young birds are duller than adults.Red-vented bulbuls feed on fruits, petals of flowers ^_^
