It has been a successful breeding year for my bird neighbours----a pair of Red Whiskered Bulbul.
The couple have successfully raised four chicks this year. The juveniles are growing very fast and getting more and more handsome by the day.
Recently, I have started putting out their favourite food and the whole family seem to be happy settling in the garden.
Watching them feeding is one of my favourite past times. The youngsters are particularly interesting to watch. The one on the right is a little bully and always tries to have the feeder to itself.
If its brothers/sisters refuse to leave, it can become very aggressive.
Sometimes, it is even hostile to the parents, usually without success.
Occasionally, however, even the parents have to give up to its bullying.
