[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White-spectacled Bulbul also known as the Yellow-vented Bulbul,[2] Pycnonotus xanthopygos, is a small bird, a bit bigger than a sparrow. It is 20-25 centimeters in length, and its wingspan is 20–25 centimeters. A stable bird that lives in fruit plantations, gardens, cities etc. It is the most common member of the Bulbul family in Israel and Lebanon.[3] In Turkey, it is mainly found in the coastal Mediterranean region but its range extends from Patara/Gelemiş near Kaş in the west to Türkoğlu in the east.[4] Breeding populations are found from Central and Southern Turkey to Western Syria, The Lebanon, Western Jordan, Israel, Sinai and Western, Central and Southern Arabia.[5]
Both sexes are similar; juveniles have a browner hood and less obvious eye-rings than the adults. The nest – a small cup of thin twigs, grass stems, leaves and moss – is generally located in bushes and lined with hair, shredded bark and small roots.[5] They can be considered as pets if raised by humans at an age not exceeding three weeks. When being raised, people usually feed them with bananas using a stick.
