BHUNTAR, KULLU VALLEY, HIMACHAL PRADESH, INDIA.

The Himalayan Bulbul.

Birds are meant to be as free as the wind that powers their wings, and in the Himalayan highlands, the Himalayan Bulbul with its Mohawk like hairdo enjoys a life of freedom, fluttering from tree branch to tree branch sweetening the air with its soft and soulful whistles. Ornithologists and experts have for long debated why birds sing, but they have also unanimously believed, the melodious sounds are not intentionally meant for the amusement of humans. They are possibly mating calls to attract the opposite sex, best heard out in the wild.
