J for Jungle Babbler


Popularly known across India as ‘Saat Saheliya’ or ‘Saat Dost’ these noisy, angry looking birds are normally in a group of 6 to 10 and they come about and create a huge amount of noise. At my house they even spend a lot of time fighting with their own reflection in the mirror on the bike. Their features are such they always look angry! Though this one for a change does not look that angry and is perhaps intrigued at the photographer.

Perhaps it is thinking,

‘I am so common, why do you click me’

To which I will reply,

‘I am common too and hence I like people like me!’ 😀

  1. Yes yes yes yes…. the mirrors on the cars, the windshield, all of them are in danger when these birds come around. Permanent visitors at my place 🙂 Nice to have a name to go by, for them 🙂

  2. Yeah, these birds do look angry! By the way, aren’t these Yellow billed Babblers? Are they also called Jungle Babblers?
    And of course a great click!

  3. Awesome! I have never done bird photography, but it is something that greatly interests me. Lovely shot.
