Unexpected bird: bulbul

Hey guys

So I live in North Iraq, thereís a bird type pretty common here called ďBulbulĒ
So let me tell you guys what happened, I was sitting in the kitchen when I heard an unusual ďvoiceĒ coming from behind the door! I opened it and saw a white neck bulbul singing behind it, unbelievable honestly it didnít even fly away, it flew inside afterwards.... itís not tame but not scared of people either altho it looks extremely skinny so i gave it some fruit, it comes to my hand when i have food

My ringneck isnít attacking her or anything so thatís good

I still have to process what happened... i know people say birds pick YOU as their owner but what the hell 😂😂, what would you do in my place? I think it might be a lost pet as people keep them as pets here..

Re: Unexpected bird: bulbul

For starters I would be very careful about any disease passing on to my birds. If you are caring for it then keep it separate until you are able to assess why it is thin, if it is sick, or just what is going on. I guess if you think it might be a lost pet you should try and trace anyone who might be looking for it.

Re: Unexpected bird: bulbul

Thank you for rescuing this bird.

Birds have no natural want to befriend Humans. So it is very likely that this Bulbul has been in the kind care of someones home.

In many countries it is not allowed to keep wild birds as pets. So, double check that first and if legal, check local sources for anyone looking for their pet.

Again, thank you for your kindness.

Re: Unexpected bird: bulbul

Want to plug this amazing website that birders have used for years to host their images and videos (and audio recordings) of birds around the world. I found these videos of the Iraq white-spectacled Bulbul lovey.
