When I was getting ready to go to work today morning, I heard some noise & was amazed to see three birdlings huddled together in a small nest. I couldn't investigate further as I was getting late for work.
On returning from work, first thing I did was to check the nest & it was of Red Vented Bulbul.
The parents were busy feeding the hungry birdlings & they took turns in feeding them.
The nest was well camouflaged among the grapevine leaves & before the Bulbul parents returned to the nest they would check the surrounding for a while. Initially they hesitated to come to nest when we were around , but eventually they got used to us & we were free to take close pictures of them.
In the night on of the parents slept on top of the birdlings.
