Do you know Red-whiskered Bulbul?

The torrential rain might have probably destroyed its nest and that may be the reason this bird landed on my husband's lap today morning.

And he is a well known bird watcher in his circle. I identify birds only by their sounds but my husband knows more.

This rather shy bird is called Red-whiskered Bulbul, quite common in Madras. Though it is not a great singer, I like its shallow calls in chirpy notes.

They feed more on insects than on fruits. Both the male and female birds look alike. They can be seen in flocks like babblers.

They take off swiftly when they sense danger.
