RedVentedBulbul

April 26, 2017 – Red-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer)

These Bulbuls are native to tropical Southeast Asia, but have been introduced to other parts of the world, including New Zealand, the United States, and many Pacific islands. Their diet is mainly soft fruits, seeds, and nectar, but also includes insects and even small lizards. They tend to forage in pairs and are very hostile toward other birds, often displacing local species with their aggressive behavior. Often Breeding year-round, they may raise up to three broods a year. Their nests are shallow cups, constructed from twigs, roots, and spiderwebs.

You can see their eggs in my Easter/spring post.
