Hairy-Backed Bulbuls

13th March 2010, Kemensah, Selangor




A couple of Hairy-Backed Bulbuls joined in the feast


  1. A new one on me madi. Nice shots. Their eyes seem to be in a unique position or is it an illusion caused by the paleness around the eye?

  2. This bird is not so common. Available everywhere but it is very shy. So not seen so easily.

  3. nice collection of bulbul you have there.

  4. Yes, the eyes seem to be further back than it should be.
    As you said, the paleness around the eyes which extend right to the beak area causes this optical illusion.
    They are quite common in the lowland forest but you don't get to see them on every outing.
