This bulbul It gets its name from the red whisker patch located below its eye. It feeds on fruits and small insects and they conspicuously perch on trees and their calls are a loud three or four note call. Red-whiskered Bulbuls build an open cup nest of rootlets, bark and leaves, lined with soft fibre. The nest is usually placed in a low tree fork. Two or three broods may be reared in a season. Both birds incubate the eggs and care for the young birds. The eggs are pale pink, streaked and spotted with shades of red.
They are very common in hill forests and urban gardens within its range.
