Bird identified after 5 years!
« on: January 25, 2019, 10:54:48 AM »
Today's MGS Facebook cover photo, taken by Alisdair, is of a bulbul on a potted Aloe in the garden La Majorelle, Morocco. By pure coincidence I took a very similar photo of the same subject on the same day. I never knew what the bird was so it's nice to have its identity revealed after such a long time.  :D
