Not for the Christmas tree...and that is a bauble.....this not the RedWhiskered Bulbul either, but this is the The light-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus sinensis), or Chinese Bulbul as they are commonly called here.
Here on my roof, in Saikung. now many fewer post apocolyptic typhoon.
This bulbul is abundant in lightly wooded areas, cultivated land and shrubland, whereas the red-whiskered bulbul is the common bulbul of suburbs and urban parks.
