Welcome to the forums!

Generally speaking, it's not advisable nor recommended to house birds of different species on the same cage and given the many differences between both species it really is best to house your budgie separately from your White-eared bulbul.

As to the possibility of them playing together, if the bulbul is more similar to canaries or finches in terms of general disposition/personality, then I doubt they will be able to play well together. More than likely, the budgie will be showing his dominance over the bulbul and would possibly chase or bully your bulbul.

I don't know anything of the species of bulbul, but I wouldn't consider it safe to allow them to live in a cage together.

I would be very concerned about the budgie injuring the bulbul if they played together.

Personally, I wouldn't risk interaction between them.

They are too different. I would not house them together or allow them out together.
The budgie could cause serious damage.

I agree with the previous posters.
For the health and well-being of both of your birds, it is best they are not allowed to play together and should never be caged together.

Hi there and to the forums!

It's very interesting that you have a White-eared Bulbul as a pet I hear they are quite common in the Middle East and India, but I have never seen one.

You've been given great advice as to the situation between him and your budgie. It's best not to risk the safety or mental/emotional health of either of your birds by allowing them to interact since they are so different.

Meanwhile, be sure to read through all the links provided above, as they will be of great help to learn even more about your budgie If you have any questions after reading through everything, don't hesitate to ask as we'd love to help!

We would also love to see pictures of both your birds when you get a chance--there's even an "Other Birds" section where any and all pictures of non-budgies are always welcome!

Cheers!

Thanks a lot for all your replies. I'll make sure my budgies and bulbul don't stay close to each other. And thank you for all the kind greetings!!!
