Yellow-vented Bulbul on Papaya Tree

I saw this Yellow Vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier) sitting pretty on my papaya tree and just couldn't resist taking some shots.

The sun was blazing hot and it must have taken to the shade to cool off.

The papaya tree was framed by bougainvilleas and heliconias.  Towards the back  and beyond are trees and shrubs on the low hills.

Basking in the filtered and dappled light must have been an enjoyable experience for it stayed for quite a while.

It gave a cursory glance at the direction of the fruits and flowers and was not moved to partake of them.


However it shook its posterior vigorously in some ritualistic form of grooming.

When grooming was don, it took flight to ...

a wooden stake nearby.

Another papaya tree next to an Norfolk Island tree.
