|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|i found this bird in Neora Valley. Neora Valley is a favourite trek route for nature-lovers. it leads to Lava, in the district of Darjeeling. the valley is named after the crystal-clear, ice-cold, greenish-blue river Neora. this valley is rich with thousands of butterflies of different types and birds. i still can't come out of the impact of seeing a splendid red-green-yellow-blue bird which i couldn't photograph, nor could watch properly due the the very short time of appearance as given by that beauty! i surely want to go there once again.|
apart from that, it is also well known for Red Pandas, Cheetahs and various insects. Neora Valley remains closed in monsoon. the best time to visit this piece of heaven is in between October and March.
now this bird. Himalayan Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucogenys) is a type of Bulbul that i had never seen before. it was a beautiful experience. Red Vented Bulbuls are very common in the place where i live. Red Whiskered Bulbuls are also not that rare. but this trip had given me the scope of watching two more types of Bulbuls: Himalayan Bulbul and Black-crested Bulbul!

Subject a bit too far away, Ruby. The eye of the bird is vital in bird imagery.
Nevertheless, we gather a fairly good impression of the Himalyan Crested Bulbul here.
Mr Thakur is correct Ruby, any way good approach.
