Another Bulbul.....The Mountain Bulbul

The Mountain Bulbul . Ixos mcclellandii This was the first time I had seen one of these, just last week. What an attractive bird, eh?

Yes, true to its name, it is mainly found in the upper reaches of forested hills and mountains - above 2,000m I have read. Well, that counts HK out then! doh. Internet research eh? This one was at about 600m, near the top of Tai Mo Shan. It has the same crested head, and similar size, so at first I thought it was a Chestnut Bulbul - but noooo, a new species for me, and perhaps for you too?
