Thanks Martin for information... Must record on Oriental Birds and Cornell Bird Labs... It will be important...

I recall seeing the bulbul with its red cheeks and pointy hairstyle in Sydney Australia. They have become established in Sydney and even cold Melbourne possibly as escaped caged birds.

Leuba.. thanks for sharing your experience.. They are not seen in urban areas mostly seen in rural and semi forest and forest areas in hills.

This is flagship bird of Western ghats... Its whistles are so sweet and you always love to listen them...

I love these birds - As a child in India, I used to see them every morning in our garden in Kodaikanal, calling so beautifully..their numbers seemed to decrease over the years obviously with forests being demolished and with urbanisation. I do hope they are not endangered in the Ghats- maybe the bird guys Ashish, Satyen or Atul would know..

Great photo Sree Ram !

Shape of beak, head, etc. looks very much like the Tufted Titmouse we have in Texas - minus these beautiful colors.

Beautiful spot!
Welcome to Project Noah Sree!
This is native to Asia but the map shows this as being spotted in Canada. Did you see this bird in an aviary or wildlife park?
