The Himalayan Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucogenys) 

Around my native village in the Baijnath Town of Himachal Pradesh, it is very common to see Himachal Bulbul birds. I love their sweet voice and beautiful look. I love to chase them with my camera whenever I visit my village.

The scientific name of Himalayan Bulbul is Pycnonotus leucogenys. These birds come under the songbirds because of their sweet voice. They belong to the Pycnonotidae family of birds. 
I love the god gifted hair style of these birds which is sharper in male Himalayan Bulbul birds. It is a small bird with average of weight of 27 to 35 grams. We can recognize these birds with the pale yellow color their underside.

It is common to find these birds in pairs or in small groups. Mostly, they are friendly birds and come very close to humans. At the village, few of Himalayan Bulbul birds come daily to eat rice which we put in the feeder for the house sparrows.
