[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Himalyan Bulbuls are the most commonly sighted bird in Kashmir Valley. These birds are so brave that they are not afraid of humans and even can snatch a piece of bread/ biscuites from their hands. Usually they are found in couples, this one was too close to me on our houseboat and the other partner was finding food inside the dining room of our houseboat.

some details from wikipedia:-
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.
