Jungle Babbler (Turdoides striata)
Jungle Babblers are very noisy birds found all over India, including cities, suburbs, towns and villages! Belonging to the Babbler family, these birds make harsh kee-kee-kee sounds in such a manner that their group can be recognized from far away. Almost dust brown in color, they have a dull yellow bill with black in yellow eyes.
They are gregarious birds that forage in small groups of six to ten birds, a habit that has given them the popular name of Seven Sisters or Saath bhai in Hindi with cognates in other regional languages which means “seven brothers”.
