I really cannot identify birds apart from the crow and pigeon, but that does not prevent me from admiring them . We stay on the third floor of an apartment complex and the few trees in a ‘still standing’ independent house, brings scores of birds to the neighbourhood. With the Sankranti festival and kites getting entangled in the trees; we had birds coming out of their nesting areas. Thanks to Sandhya, who identified the bird for me.
The Red-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer). The Red-vented Bulbul is easily identified by its short crest giving the head a squarish appearance. The body is dark brown with a scaly pattern while the head is darker or black. Sexes are similar in plumage, but young birds are duller than adults. Bird of dry scrub, open forest, plains and cultivated lands It feeds mainly on fruits, petals of flowers,nectar, insects and occasionally geckos
The bulbul first played hide and seek for sometime.
