Hello to all dear my friends, I am back after a long long time and am extremely glad see all the old faces alive and well and working as efficiently as before, following their pursuits with all their hearts.I am glad to meet you all again and hope you and all your family members are doing fine.
This is the white-eared bulbul (Pycnonotus leucotis), or white-cheeked bulbul, is a member of the bulbul family. It is found in south-western Asia from India to the Arabian peninsula and I took this shot in a nearby graveyard of Shah Sahib and though these birds don't belong to this part of the world but I was so happy to shoot this bird so near my home.Hope friends would like this acceptable return shot.I'll be in touch.
The white-eared bulbul was originally described in the genus Ixos. The white-eared bulbul is considered to belong to a superspecies along with the Himalayan bulbul, white-spectacled bulbul, African red-eyed bulbul, Cape bulbul, and the common bulbul.[2] Formerly, some authorities considered the white-eared bulbul to be a subspecies of the Himalayan This species is very similar in appearance to the Himalayan white-cheeked bulbul but smaller and uncrested, and with a larger white cheek patch. It has a pale bare eye-ring. The vent is orange yellow. Sexes are alike.

It is found in scrub forest and gardenland. Also found in flocks or pairs in the mangroves, gorging on the fruits of the Meswak bush. Usually seen in pairs or small groups. It feeds on fruits and insects, and breeds in March–June.Bulbul. The alternate name, white-cheeked bulbul, is also used by the Himalayan bulbul. In Iran it is sometimes referred to as "the bulbul of Tehran".

Hi Syed,
you succeeded where I failed in picturing a White eared (or White cheeked) Bülbül in the wild, my compliment. It is true, the species is not shy and makes itself heard a lot, but still. ... You even caught it calling !
Thanks for the presentation, greetings Dietrich

Une très belle prise, belle attitude de cet oiseau Bulbul
Bon W-E
