Lycium barbarum family Solanaceae (Garothi =  Local name) another major food item of Grey Hypocolius in Kutch, Gujarat, India.
Although the major food item still remains the ripe and unripe berries of Salvadora persica (Khari jar_local name), Grey Hypocolius do feed on the berries and flower buds of Lycium bush in Kutch, this was observed on many occasion. The identity of this was established yesterday while discussing this with Botanist Dr. Pankaj Joshi.
Here in this picture you can see a grey hypocolius male on Lycium bush. They do roost in these bushes.
grey Hypocolius are still in Kutch till 12 th April 2008. I am going to check their roost tomorrow.
Last year the last sighting was on 16 th April 2008.
