Article summary

The Garden Bulbul is a tame, gregarious bird in the Algerian Sahel. We recorded its daily activity pattern at two suburban sites, where it spends 82.0 % of its time perching, preferring taller trees like eucalyptus (13.3 %) in accordance with its origin as a forest bird. It calls and sings continuously and loudly, and mainly shortly after sunrise and before sunset. Its food is varied with a preference for fruits, accounting for 77.6 % of its diet. It also hunts small prey (12.5 %), often on the wing.
