Dehradun. After the rare coral snake in Uttarakhand, now the white Himalayan bulbul has also appeared. The coral snake was found in Mussoorie, while the white Himalayan bulbul called ALBINO BULBUL has been seen in the cobweb zone of Corbett. In general, the color of the bulbul is dark or yellow, but for the first time white bulbul appeared in Uttarakhand. Experts are calling it a very rare event and it is also an interesting case related to genetics.
Regarding the white bulbul, Corbett Park director Rahul said that this happens due to genetic mutation. Such creatures are rarely seen. This type of mutation is also visible in other animals. Dhananjay Mohan, director and bird expert of the Wildlife Institute of India, says that in India, a similar case was seen in peacocks years ago. Many years ago, scientists had also tried to preserve these peacocks by bringing them to the zoo.
Describing the mutation, Mohan said that when mating was done in these peacocks, some eggs produced normal children, but some white peacocks were also born. Mohan says that this is due to mutation, such birds are not able to survive for long.
How did you get the white bulbul?
During the jungle safari to tourists in the Dhela zone of Corbett, nature guide Sachin Chauhan first caught sight of the white bulbul. He also took pictures of it and informed the director of the park. Six species of Himalayan bulbul are found in Corbett. The behavior of this bird, which always likes to live in pairs, is considered sociable. Its length is about 18 cm and weight is around thirty grams.
