The Red Whiskered Bulbul is probably the most common garden bird in the coffee growing region of Kodagu, South India. They are striking however with their "red whiskers", attractive crest, and red "vent". They are also tremendously devoted parents. I rescued two nearly adult babies from a nest in the garden that was disturbed by pruning, and put them in a cat carrier on an upper veranda for safety. I found the parents feeding them through the bars, and a few days later, I released the fledglings under their watchful eyes.
