This is a common bulbul video.
15 December 2010.
After our arrival yesterday, first today, the centre of Inezgane, a suburb of Agadir.
We see birds living close to houses here. House sparrows. Collared doves. And a common bulbul.
Then, to the Oued Sous river delta. Many magpies: the blue-eyed Moroccan subspecies.
This video says about itself:
Quite common near Agadir. A very distinctive bird. Agadir, Morocco, May 2010.

Many grey herons and little egrets.

A male stonechat.
On a wall, a black redstart.
Ten meter to its left on that wall, a pied wagtail.
A migrant from Europe, a chiffchaff.
A kestrel flying to an electric light pole.
On the other side of the river, three Dorcas gazelle.
Over a hundred serins in a leafless tree.
A Barbary falcon sitting high in a higher tree.
A great egret. Greater flamingos.
