The Red-vented Bulbul /Pycnonotus cafer is another bird that we see on a daily basis. You can see how it gets its name--from the small but very prominent crimson patch at the base of its tail.
In India, bulbuls are seen as cute little birds. Bulbul and Bulbuli are common names here. But despite its size, the bird can be aggressive. Wherever it has been introduced outside India, it has damaged crops and caused a major drop in the native bird population.

This photo was taken last year on an early morning walk in my hometown. It was a misty morning in January and the only birds around were these two.
I'm linking up to World Bird Wednesday.
