The Common Bulbul is possibly the most commonly seen bird in Africa where it is distributed across most of the continent except the Sahara and the south-west. As far as the Western Palearctic is concerned it is found from Morocco to Tunisia and in the Nile Valley. It is found in almost any habitat except dense forest, treeless desert and grassland without trees.
