Birds in the Garden---Regular Visitors


The Red Whiskered Bulbuls are not the only birds that enjoy being around my garden. 


  Like the bulbuls, a pair of Blue Magpies (Red-billed Magpie) have been around for a while too. Their favourite food is the papayas in the garden. 



 
The young Common Magpies, however, are often seen looking for leftovers on the ground. 


  

The Blue Whistling Thrush family occasionally comes looking for insects as well as fruit.


But it is always the food dispenser that sees the most activity.

Unlike the Red-whiskered Bulbuls, the Chinese Bulbuls are very cautious birds and often sit on the nearby pomelo tree observing. 




The Red-whiskered bulbul family is quite happy sharing food with other birds.

True to their reputation, the Starlings, on the other hand, are not only noisy but also bullies.

Each species & bird does have it's own personality.. It is interesting to see your version of our common birds..doves & starlings..thrush.. The Bubuls are completely unknown.. Some great backyard collection!

Great post again!
The Blue Magpies are stunning!
You must really enjoy having these pretty visitors around you!
I wish I could have such a spot next door instead of having to travel miles in the hope of good birding!
Congratulations!

Jednym słowem każdy ptak ma inne sposoby zdobycie jedzenia. Może i szpak to łobuz, ale ma cudowne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.
In a word, every bird has different ways of getting food. Maybe a rogue starling, but it has wonderful pictures. Yours.
