Cape Bulbul

Closest I can get

To a cute Robin Redbreast

Bulbul Yellow Bum



There are a couple of Cape Bulbuls nesting in my garden. Though it’s a little hard to see in the photo, they have a distinctive yellow underbelly.

Every time I go outside the Bulbuls instantly come and check me out. Not shy, they’ll sit right by me; on the chair, solar lamp or railings; and chirp away to let me know just whose garden this is!

    I’ve never seen a Robin Redbreast….but I’ve seen hundreds, if not thousands, of robins with orange breasts. Where I come from, cardinals are red, not robins!.

      I very rarely saw Robins in the UK. Here in CT we have a Cape Robin; about 6 inches long and very pretty, but not like the UK ones.
      Those Cardinals are a lovely red! 🙂

      Yes, this little Bulbul is very pretty and has a lovely melodious song too. 🙂
      We do have Cape Robins here – but they don’t look much like a Robin Redbreast either.

    What a great close up! How privileged you are that they come so close to you. Enjoy your new best friends. What a treat!
