African Red-eyed Bulbul

Pycnonotus nigricans (near-endemic)

As its name suggests, this near-endemic species can be distinguished from southern Africa’s two other bulbuls by its red eye-ring.

We first recorded this bulbul in July 2010 while visiting Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve in south east Gauteng. We have had many great sightings since then, specifically in Botswana and Namibia.
