“I was out with friends today and we observed a number of Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus pattani) feeding on a small fruit (white berries with embedded seeds) called the Native or Australian Mulberry (Pipturus argenteus) (above).
“The birds included the:
1. Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus pattani) (above)
2. Yellow Vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier analis)
3. Asian Glossy Starling (Aplonis panayensis strigata)
4. Oriental Magpie Robin (Copsychus saularis musicus)
5. Blue Rock Thrush (Monticola solitarius madoci).
“The Red-whiskered Bulbuls here are a feral population but have been breeding successfully (above).”
