African Red-eyed bulbul :: Pycnonotus nigricans

There is a new habitant in Creatureshire’s Savannah, the African Red eyed bulbul (Pycnonotus nigricans). I first saw it on the home page of Encyclopaedia of Life and my curiosity led me to find out more. They are a species of songbird living in the southern part of the African continent and seem to be very common.

I was delighted by their plumage colours and I couldn’t resist bringing them into Creatureshire. The post earrings are now wandering alongside with other birds in the shop. I hope you like them!

Há um novo habitante na Savana de Creatureshire, o pycnonotus nigricans. A primeira vez que o vi foi na página de entrada da Encyclopaedia of Life e a minha curiosidade levou-me a querer descobrir mais. São uma espécie de ave canora que vive no sul do continente Africano e parecem ser muito comuns.

Fiquei deliciada com as cores da sua plumagem e não resiti a trazê-los para Creatureshire. Os brincos estão agora a voar com outros pássaros na loja. Espero que gostem!
