|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is not a good picture of a crested Himalayan Bulbul. Still, I'm posting it for the sake of record. It was taken during my summer trek to the Himalayas in June 2011.|
The Himalayan Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucogenys) is a species of songbird in the Pycnonotidae family. If they are mixed with humans from a young age, they will become friendly to humans. It is found in the northern regions of the Indian Subcontinent as well as some adjoining areas. It is found in Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Tajikistan.
