Bible Animals: Bulbul Bulbul in the ancient World.
Ancient Bulbul. A SPECIES of the Thrush tribe, called the Bulbul, exists in great quantities in Israel. They seek out the ridge of a roof (Psalms cii. 7), where they pour out their plaintive song, which is thought by many to surpass the notes of the nightingale. - Animals, Birds, Insects, And Reptiles Of The Bible
