Friends, this is a hastility taken snap shot of these two Himalayan Bulbuls visiting our bird feed pans today morning. I saw a number of these and Oriental White-eyes eating from the pans while leaving my house for work. Providentially, my compact camera is always with me, so I whipped it out and took hurried random shots by zooming up since there was a distance of about 20 feet between me and those birds. Many turned out blurry and unfocused; only a couple including this one were pretty good. What surprised me the most were those bees partaking of some nourishment from the pans in which we keep bird seeds and sometimes stale chappattis for crows in particular.
These Himalayan Bulbuls are visiting us these days during their migration to the north Indian plains. Their natural habitat is higher Himalayan valleys. They will return there when it starts getting warmer here in early March.
Thanks for looking.

Por fim a foto ficou engraçada dando a impressão que os pássaros conversam assustados e com medo da abelha. rsrs

Hello Ram,
A cute shot which as you stated, was taken at the spur of the moment. The one bird looks as if it was saying...Honey, look who has shown up for dinner:)
