Get Close To The Red Whiskered Bulbuls


  The feeders on the balcony have given me the opportunity to get very close to the Red Whiskered Bulblus. Although the Red Whiskered Bulblus are as common as sparrows in Hong Kong, I find them not only fascinating but also full of personality.

   The colours of the adults may not be very bright but still quite pretty.













  The juveniles may be plain by comparison but they make it up by being  extremely cute.
