The Red Whiskered Bulbul is native to India where its name is 'sipahi
bulbul', meaning 'soldier bulbul' - the crest looks like the plume on
some military headgear. ('Sipahi' is the same word as 'sepoy', if anyone
still reads Kipling). 
I don't know how extensive its range is, nor whether it is found outside
the Indian subcontinent, but I understand it is reasonably common.
