Adult Black–Headed Bulbul

8 August 2009, Kemensah, Selangor








I’ve never had the opportunity to shoot this bird so close like this one. This adult Black–Headed Bulbul (Pycnonotus atriceps) local name:  Merbah Kepala Hitam, Burung Siam landed on a branch 8ft from the top of my head. Unlike most that I’ve seen, she seemed very curious, probably wondering what I was doing and wasn’t easily spooked.
