The Scaly-breasted Bul Bul. (Pycnonotus squamatus) 14 - 16 cm

Another beautiful bird from the Bul Bul family albeit less seen amongst the wide family type is the Scaly-breasted. To increase the chances of sighting them it would be advisable to know the fruiting season of which this specie's favorite. My personal experience has been sightings about 3 months apart.    

This category also prefer to forage on tree canopies which also makes for some difficulty to get good photos. The main habitat are broadleaved open forest up to about 1000 meters.

Here are some photos of the bird feeding.

Thanks for dropping by. Cheers!
