Bulbul brothers finally left their Nest

Bulbul brothers finally left their Nest
Bulbul siblings stepping out of their nest for the final flight!
Excuse me for vaguely considering these bulbul chicks as 'male'. Let me clarify, this is not the result of any bias, but, because of the innocent fact that 'brothers' sounds better with bulbul than 'siblings' or 'sisters' (Yep buddy, otherwise I'm all good for gender equality, trans-genders included!). Would you believe me if I say these are those same baby bulbuls who were nothing more than a piece of fifty gram raw flesh each, just two weeks back? Well, this is the final photo story on my bulbul series and these photos were captured just before two bulbul brothers left their nest, abandoning my washroom forever (Click to read the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth photo post of this bulbul photo series). As I told you before of the growing aggression of the bulbul mother, I was praying for their rapid maturation so that my bathroom gets back its 'private' status once again. The final day was thoroughly eventful. Bulbul chicks started hopping and gliding from one position of the tiny room to another, as a warm-up before the final flight. There is a papaya tree easily reachable from the bathroom window. As soon as one of these chicks reached a papaya branch, a hawk appeared from nowhere and grabbed the tiny bulbul. Oh what a circus it had been, and finally, two adult bulbuls could chase the hunter and rescue back their offspring. Thankfully the kid as unharmed. Here end all bulbul updates but I'll post a couple more selected photos from my bulbul archive in my next post... please check back soon.

    1. Thank you so much Amit... but, here my kindness played no role. All credit must go to their mother and of course their fortune :-P
