Another very common sight in Hong Kong is the Crested Bulbul or the Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus).
Very social, these noisy, chattering birds can be seen in many of the parks.
Crested Bulbul or the Red-whiskered Bulbul
(Pycnonotus jocosus). This pretty bird is a common
sight in Hong Kong, found everywhere from
woodland to gardens. They are not only frugivores
(furit eaters), they also enjoy a tasty insect. Still
favoured as a pet today, they are known to live for up
to eleven years in captivity. They have a rather
chivalrous courtship, where the male bows his bead,
drops his wings and spreads his tail. In Hong Kong
they breed from April till June.
Now a couple of shots of the bird squashing the seed to eat it....nom nom as my daughter would say...
