The Common Bulbul (Pycnonotus barbatus) ~ Bulbul des jardins ~ in a sea of blossoms of the Flame Tree ~ The Flamboyant (Ponciana regia).
The Common Bulbul is usually seen in pairs or small groups. They eat fruit, nectar and insects and tend to sit at the top of a bush. As with other bulbuls they are active and noisy birds. Their bouncy flight is woodpecker-like and their call is a loud doctor-quick doctor-quick be-quick be-quick.
