Abstract

The establishment of a feral population of the Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) in the environs of Miami, Dade County, Florida, was reported by L. A. Stimson (Florida Naturalist, 35: 93, 1962). Bulbuls were present in Kendall, just south of Miami, in the spring of 1961, and apparently raised young there that summer. In the fall of that year, bulbuls were also seen in the vicinity of Princeton, approximately 35 miles southwest of Miami. Confirmation of nesting at Kendall was presented in 1962 (Aud. Field Notes, 16: 402, 1962). By 1964 the population of bulbuls in Kendall was estimated at 40 to 50 (Aud. Field Notes, 18: 349, 1964)
