Bulbul Hatching her three Eggs in my Washroom

Bulbul Hatching her three Eggs in my Washroom
Oh I'm sorry my friends for the wrong information I had shared in my last post regarding the number of Bulbul egg! This red-whiskered lady bulbul seems to have little interest in family planning as I could spot THREE eggs in her clutch. She is happy hatching those three eggs almost 24/7, and my activities in washroom, sound of water or even door, bother her no more. She still stares at me with her pitch black eyes but the level of suspicion has considerably lowered for sure. Her constant presence in my washroom has decreased my overall bathroom-time and honestly I don't know whether I should be cheerful or irritated about it!

I wish the humid condition of my washroom and the tolerable warmth of monsoon favors the hatching of her eggs and three kid bulbuls come out of those shells soon. As the bulbul has nested immediately above the bulb holder I'm scared to switch on the light at night, in case the high temperature adversely affects the biological process in eggs. Those of you who have missed my previous post, you may click here to check photographs of a lady bulbul who had nested in our rose shrub (for hatching of course) and laid few eggs last year, in the month of April. These are all mobile captures too, taken with Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Nokia X2 respectively. Once again, please shower your good wishes over this refugee bulbul mother.

  2. We had Pigeons laying their eggs straight for three years in our washroom, though not this year, due to some rennovation and we had this joke, its not our house but its their nursing home. And I warn you in advance it will stink a lot once babies born as they do lot of shit here and there, so gear yourself with lot of toilet fresheners.

    1. I always thought pigeons to be living pooping machines... lol... I can only hope that bulbul won't shit that much but I'll hang a couple of odonil sachets as prophylaxis :-P
