Pycnonotus leucotis

The White-eared Bulbul (Scientific name: Pycnonotus leucotis) who called out to say it was nearby. It was so close I had difficulty focusing . This species is very similar in appearance to the Himalayan white-cheeked bulbul Pycnonotus leucogenys but smaller and uncrested and with a larger white cheek patch. It has a pale bare eye-ring. The vent is orange yellow. (Wiki) Clicked at Qurum Park in Muscat, Oman in Feb/2016.
