Bulbuls snuggling

the Crested Bulbul or the Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) loves company.

Very social, these noisy, chattering birds can be seen in many of the urban parks of Hong Kong.

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.
