[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this picture in the harsh mid-day light from my house terrace today.

The red-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer) is a member of the bulbul family of passerines. It is resident breeder across the Indian subcontinent, including Sri Lanka extending east to Burma and parts of Tibet. It has been introduced in many other parts of the world and has established itself in the wild on several Pacific islands including Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, and Hawaii. It has also established itself in parts of Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, the United States, and Argentina.[2] It is included in the list of the world's 100 worst invasive alien species.

Hello Ram,
Quite nice considering the lighting was not in your favor. The markings of the Bulbul are very pretty as we can clearly see, nice eye contact. I love the long spotted tail in contrast to its brown and white body and blackish blue crested head.

Hello Ram,
Nice image taken in difficult conditions but with lot of fine details of the feathers.
