White browed Bulbul (Pycnonotus luteolus) This Bubul is captured in my hometown, Dharwad. There is a spiritual Ashram called TAPOVAN. I was photographying redwiskered Bulbul which was hidden in the scrubs, Just then I noticed this peculiar bird which I had never seen. I was not able to capture a close fully visible bird, this is what I got. I use to go to different place to photograph birds, but for my astonishment my hometown itself is a good place for photography and there are many species still, which I'm yet to discover.

The white-browed bulbul is a member of the bulbul family of passerine birds. It is a resident breeder in Sri Lanka and peninsular India. Largely olive coloured above with whitish underparts, it has a pale supercilium and a yellow vent. They are found in dense scrub habitats, where they skulk within vegetation and can be difficult to see although their loud and distinct burst of calls is distinctive.
