Birds In The Garden---- A Little Bully

 
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.

Teraz poznałam ptaka z Twojej "ikonki". One są cudowne i wspaniałe to na zdjęciach pokazałeś. Jeden z młodych ptaków, który odgania pozostałe od jedzenia, da sobie świetnie radę w życiu, z głodu nie umrze. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
Now I met a bird with your "icons". They are wonderful and great that the pictures showed. One of the young birds, which odgania other than food, give the great advice in your life will not die of hunger. Yours sincerely.

Hello,
These shots are so great. It's really fantastic to see these amazing birds with their funny tuft.
Funny to see how the little one makes a lot of noise to his parents.

Many greetings,
Marco

Stunning pictures. I am not familiar with this species and it is nice to see them on your blog. Is this a common bird in Hong Kong? They look funny with their punky tuft. Thanks for visiting my blog. Greetings, Joke
