Feeding of Sooty-headed Bulbul chicks

on 9th September 2011

Francis Yap’s video of a pair of Sooty-headed Bulbul (Pycnonotus aurigaster) chicks begging for food and being fed by an adult, was documented on 30th July 2011. The site is Singapore’s latest birdwatching playground, the Lorong Halus Wetland.

Note that the vent of the chicks is yellow while that of the adult is reddish/orange. This is a rather uncommon introduced species.
