Hip Coiffure of Yellow-vented Bulbuls

I love the short spiky feathers on the crown of Yellow-vented Bulbuls (Pycnonotus goiavier). They are the originals. Youths nowadays seem to have taken a leaf from this particular avian hairstyle. To adopt a similiar spiky look, they have to resort to gel and other hair-raising products.

The spikes are brown and run from the front to the back of the head. Here it was nicely positioned just in front of ...

a red Hibiscus rosa sinensis.

The vine in front is Passiflora miniata (Scarlet Passion flower).

The vine is adventurous and has crept up everywhere, here, trying to make a and appearance into my porch.

I do wonder whether it has to do the daily routine of spiking up its tuft of short feathers.
