Red-vented Bulbul Nest

Today I have the nest pictures of Red-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus cafer). The Red-vented Bulbul is a member of the bulbul family of passerine birds. It is commonly found in Pakistan. Some people used to keep it as a pet bird. It is a human friendly and loyal bird and returns the owner home after several hours of flight. They feed on fruits and that is why they are considered serious garden pests. Besides fruits they also feed on nectar and insects. They breed from May to September. They lay three or four eggs in cup like nest, made of small twigs. The eggs are pale pink with darker red spots/splashes. The eggs take about 12 days to hatch.

so you have the red-vented bulbul, while we have the yellow-vented bulbul. I have a post of nestlings with their mouths wide open in my blog and flickr. We were also familiar with these nests during our childhood days in the province. Hmmm.
