A bubul in the garden

A Bulbul is in the garden. And the nest was visible enough to be photographed.

This is the Red-whiskered Bulbul as far identification is concerned.

It has built the nest in the "Neelambra" a plant that gives blue flowers. As it is not flowering season now, the nest is safe.
