AFRICAN SAFARIS - Trips Of A Lifetime

Black-eyed Bul-bul The black-eyed bulbul grow to a size of about 8-9 inches and weigh just a few ounces. They are found in woodland, forest edges, dense growth along water courses, plantations, parks and gardens.

The black-eyed bulbuls' cheerful vocalization call, which is used to establish territory, is one of the first to be heard at dawn. The black-eyed bulbul feeds mainly on fruit and nectar but also consumes insects, small vertebrates such as lizards. It seldom feeds off the ground, except to pick up cutworms from the lawn.

The nest of the black-eyed bulbul consists of a fragile cup of dry plant stems that are lined with hair, and placed at any height in a fork of a bush or a tree. The female lays three pink, purple spotted eggs, and the incubation period is about two weeks. Although the female does most of the incubating, both parents feed the chicks for between 10 and 17 days, until they are able to fly.
