The Bulbul in the central courtyard


Last week i noticed that a pair of Red-vented Bulbuls were frequenting the open to sky central courtyard within Native Place. The Golden Bamboo growing here has been the domain of the sparrows but these cheeky Bulbuls were taking no notice whatsoever of the sparrows reluctance to share the space.

All through the day the pair of Bulbuls would pop in whistling, calling and darting about. Then we spotted the nest and understood the reason for our new guests frequent visits.

How lucky you are to have such guests. :)

I didn't know what Bulbuls were, so spent some time looking them up on Wikipedia. They must be great fun to have around - with their songs. Their nest is cute!

I have a lot of cheeky animals in my yard, so I know exactly what you mean...mine are mostly squirrels, tho...
