[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bulbuls are a family, Pycnonotidae, of medium-sized passerine songbirds. Many forest species are known as greenbuls. The family is distributed across most of Africa and into the Middle East, tropical Asia to Indonesia, and north as far as Japan. A few insular species occur on the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean There are about 130 species in around 24 genera. While some species are found in most habitats, overall African species are predominately found in rainforest whilst rainforest species are rare in Asia, instead preferring more open areas. The only Bulbul which occurs in Europe was spotted in the Cyclades and bears a yellow patch, being otherwise of a snuffy brown and this is possibly the bird which has got mixed up with the nightingale in Sufi, particularly Persian Sufi, poetry.

Foozi my friend, I really like the composition of this picture. this species is new for me. nice sharpness and colour. well presentation.

truly artistic capture friend Foozi! Good day! Nice to see your work again! Interesting little bird...from that angle I can not be 100% sure, but I think that I am seeing that bulbul for a first time!The arch of this tree trunk, plays a great role in the aesthetic layout here...beautiful blue sky as well...love it!

Hello Foozi,
Even though this POV does not show all the features, the details shown are sharp and naturally coloured, which allows me to agree with Peter's suggestion that this is a Yellow-vented Bulbul, a species I photographed in Singapore.
Nice to see again in this pleasing composition.
Thanks and best regards,
