White Eared Bulbul
- Dear Friends
We visited Rewas port today morning, while going to actual port we saw about
15-20 flocks of birds going form east to west. Each flock was about 20 birds
flying very fast, few birds had whitish head; all had rufous belly & grey
colored upper portion. From its appearance it could have been
Chestnut-Tailed Starling. Little further we saw a pair sitting on a top of
tree and confirmed it as the same. We saw about 200+ birds in all, what's
nagging us is
* Is this a migration going on?
* Or they were roosting on one site and going to another for feeding?
* How common is it in Mumbai Region?
* Has any one seen this?
Near Rewas port we saw plenty of White Eared Bulbuls in mangroves. Pair of
Spot Billed Duck and many Lesser Whistling Ducks were also seen.
White Eared Bulbuls are seen only in Rewas Port area near Alibag, how much
common is it in Mumbai?
I have a photo of Nest of Scaly Breasted Munia, which we saw yesterday, it
was a large globular structure much larger for Munia size with lateral
entrance. Both male & female were building it. Anyone interested please let
me I will send the photo.
Yesterday Mr. Pravin saw a Black Hooded Oriole near Alibag; we heard a call
of Eurasian Golden Oriole near Rewas. It seems Orioles are here for winter.
Near Rewas we saw many waders.
While coming back we saw a pair of Grey Bellied Cuckoo they were very vocal.

- Dear Dr. Vaibhav,
These bulbuls are very common in the Godrej Vikhroli mangroves. They are
also seen in the mangroves of Navi Mumbai especially Vashi. Quite common
in some of the areas like Sector 7, & 8
and in the mangroves around Vashi station.

White-eared bulbuls are not uncommon in the creek mangroves marshes
in the western suburbs ,especially at Bangur Nagar, Goregaon.
