Red-whiskered Bulbul

The Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) at Manjakombai, Nilgiris.
It is a passerine bird and member of the bulbul family.  It feeds on fruits and small insects and they conspicuously perch on trees and their calls are a loud three or four note call. The distinctive crest and the red-vent and whiskers makes them easy to identify. They are very common in hill forests and urban gardens within its range.
