Have you heard how the Bul-Buli is sung?
Yellow-backed Bulbul (Pycnonotus xanthopygos)
If you have not heard how the bul-buli is sung, it means that you certainly do not live in Israel! However, Yellow-backed bulbul (Pycnonotus xanthopygos) are widespread in the tropics and subtropics of the Eastern Hemisphere. They inhabit the outskirts of forests, groves, gardens. In Israel, they feel at ease in city parks and squares.
I don’t undertake to speak in words about the singing of short-toed thrush (the so-called bul-bullet) - any trill from the words will become a pale copy of the original.
Bulbuls have several distinctive features, the main ones are white (light) rings around the eyes, as well as a yellow undertail. The second sign lies in the name, and is translated differently: "yellow-backed", "yellow-belted". And from Hebrew. However, she noted all this very wittily figra
"In Hebrew," bulbul "- pipiska, chyslovo, but psis did not come from the Hebrew pipiska, but from the Arabic" bulbul "- a songbird, a nightingale, like the singer Bul-Bul Ogly. It is modestly translated into Russian as yellow-tailed bulbul, yellow-backed bulbul and even yellow-lobed bulbul, although logic dictates that his yellow is the same as the beautiful one of Aphrodite Callipiga.
Rivalry with the bees
The plumage of the bulbul is short down, soft, long feathers on the wings and tail. All this is of an earthy gray, dull color, the head is black. Well, he likes to turn around in the same yellow place
sky flowers on light wings. "
The bullet in a fluffy fur coat is rather awkward. "With age" they become much slimmer.
With small birds, bul-buli do not behave as aggressively as brazenly: they drive the birds away, sitting on a branch that they have chosen for themselves.
What do the letters taste like? And what do they eat with?
Proud guardian of the grove.
With the loot!
They feed on insects, as well as seeds, small fruits. In my opinion, the bulbul attracts everything that blooms.
The pictures show the friendship of the bul-bullet with:
Koelreuteria paniculata (Koelreuteria paniculata)
Bombax ceiba = Bombax ceiba, cottonwood
Brachychiton acerifolium Brachychiton maple-leaved
Cape Tecomaria Tecomaria capensis.
Lantana lantana camara
Canary date (Phoenix canariensis)
Coral tree (Erythrina corallodendron)
Sources claim that with the help of the bul-buli beak, insects are removed from flowers, or they chase after them, overtaking them in flight. A foot in its beak - an interrupted flight: it was an insect with wings, taken out of the air.
