“Took some time off and came across this fruiting Ficus benjamina with many bulbuls, barbets, etc. Of note was the near threatened Yellow-crowned Barbet (Psilopogon henricii henricii).
“I have seen this bird occasionally but never so close and for such a prolonged period (2 hours).
“There were two birds. Note that the image below, one bird was actually collecting the fruit, possibly to feed young.”
