What kind of bird is this?

Post by John Bingham » Wed Mar 20, 2019 12:25 am

This bird flew into my place tonight. I gradually turned off all the lights and caught it, because it had already run into a couple of mirrors/ windows. Anyway, it seemed like a juvenile but I was surprised what a vicious maniac it was. It was squawking like crazy and trying its best to peck lumps out of me. I was careful and was able to let it fly off safely outside, it just lost a few feathers. 8-)

I'm not sure what it is, but I know what it's worth!

Asian Brown Flycatcher. That's my final answer.

Your final answer is wrong, it is a Streak-eared Bulbul.

Sounds like some kind of Korean chicken to me. Was it drunk? Did it kick you?
