Garden Bulbul Pycnonotus barbatus (1-4)
(1) Cádiz . On 2.4 there was a male at Tarifa, Cádiz (Juan Pérez-Contreras, Beatriz Pérez Manchado). nCommon Bulbuls are breeding in Tarifa this year 2015 again. The very popular local pair breeding in the urban area is present for the third consecutive year. Indeed, this is the only one known in the continent. However, over the last weeks they behave in a rather discreet manner, probably because they are engaged in their breeding activities and their descendants from previous years have abandoned the natal site. Besides, one individual was reported in a new location (J.A. Sarry and S.J. Hingstone). On 26.4 morning we were more than happy to find two unringed individuals at this new site. The Bulbul in the picture below is one of the pioneering individuals (Javier Elorriaga / Birding the Strait).
