Birdwatch album - Bulbul

Yellow-vented Bulbul
 The Bulbul is relatively easy to watch because they habitually visit the Simpoh trees (Dillenia suffructicosa) for its juicy red seeds and red ants.  The most regular visitors are the Yellow-vented species.  At one moment I was able to watch them gregariously flying above the trees in great numbers in a lively show of aerobatic display.  They eat the fruits of the Eugenia oleina when the fruiting season comes and it is also the best time to watch them with their loud chatter and merry flights.
