A Red-Whiskered Bulbul’s Nest

A Red-Whiskered Bulbul’s Nest

It’s that time of the year! The breeding season has begun and our garden is full of these pretty hidden homes. Bulbuls lay two to three eggs at a time and the hatching period is about 12-14 days. A week has gone by and a week later I will get to hear the chirping of the little ones!

The nesting activity always gets me excited. Every year I feel like a proud mama when these beautiful birds choose my home and garden for all of us to co-exist in harmony. What a privilege it is to share our space with them, watch them tirelessly go back and forth feeding their precious little ones and then see them finally grow and take a-flight.

In case you too get lucky, please do not attempt to disturb their nest in any way. I am able to safely check on these nests after careful research and experience and do so in a way that does not disturb the rearing of the young in any way.
