The White-eared Bulbul (Pycnonotus leucotis) is a bird species occurring within a belt from the Middle East through Afghanistan and Pakistan up to India. The birds are adapted to a range of habitats including dry areas with thorny scrubs, open agricultural land with small thickets, gardens, and even mangroves. Usually, they are encountered in pairs or small groups with the plumage of females and males being alike. The birds feed mainly on fruits, seeds, and insects. I have photographed these colourful birds during a journey through Kachchh in Gujarat, India, during January 2014.
