[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Two of them arrived - male and female, I suppose, but I cannot make out the difference. It rained for two days and he is actively looking for food, and finding enough. Can someone please help me with the identity of this little bird.

Update: I have now been informed that the bird is a Black-Capped Bulbul.

Hello Neels

The bird has a graceful pose, photo shot from a fine POV to show that pose
and the light shining the plumage of the bird, with excellent details, TFS



very nice shot of this exotic and colorful bird.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello Neels,

Yes, it is a Black-Capped Bulbul. I had captured this species in Marloth Park, during our staying just beside a River. Well captured. Very natural and true color. I like the way you have placed its eye; to me it's the perfect composition if we follow ROT.

Thanks for sharing,
P.S - Yes I have seen so many pictures of her. But not all,.....I'm here just 30 months may be. Different type of species she has captured. I'm looking forward to my future how can I spend as much as time in KNP. It's my dream......

Ciao Neels, great capture of lovely bird in nice pose, excellent sharpness, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Neels,
L'attitude du sujet n'est pas faite pour bien le valoriser mais il l'est tout de même par la bonne profondeur de champ et la maitrise de la lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Good clear image. The pose is a little awkward though, for easy identification.
