Cream-vented Bulbul @ Pycnonotus simplex
Thanks to Cuckooroller or Mr Steve Pryor, for correcting me. Thanks again.

I just came out of my office and I could hear some sound of busy birds. Then I saw this bublbuls on the palm tree with a catch in her mouth. I guess the nest must be somewhere near around.

Hi Foozi,

Very bad angle from which to judge. You will just have to trust my experience on this one.

Not P. goiavier. This is 99% Pycnonotus simplex (Cream-vented Bulbul).

Hello Foozi,
A nice capture of this female Bulbul. I agree with Steve that this is most likely to be the Cream-vented.
Well captured while she is feeding on palm fruit with fine lighting and sharpness and set in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hello Foozi,
Hard to see the bird as it turns away but I really love the plant it is on!! The fruit look like tiny lemons! A very beautiful composition in fine colours.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Foozi.
What a pictorial scene you have pictured. I like it a lot. Twigs pattern is amazing and nice surroundings for small beautiful and really busy bird. Sharpness of the main subject is great as well as fine smoothness and damped up colurs of the BG. Shot also is composed perfectly. Well done and my best wishes.

Hi Foozi,
a great shot of this Bulbul.
Really good detail in the feathers.
Excellent light.

Well done,

Hi Foozi
I like saturated colors and great natural surrounding. Nice sharp image and good blured background Maybe you could do a little noise reduction

hello Foozi

shot with fine POV and framing, excellent luminosity,
great sharpness and details, TFS


Hello Foozi

I like this strange palm tree very much
Great sharpness and good composition
TFS Jacqueline

Salam Foozi,

Excellent shot at this bulbul with buah dudoq making excellent perspective in the frame. Amazing sharp details with the plumage exposed in very good details. Nice light and fuzzy backdrop make the image pops.


one of your nicest photos - good capture, great POV and background - crystal clear. unsure if the white balance was a touch out, but that is being picky on a great shot!!!

Hello Foozi,
beautiful picture with the bublbuls! Very good composition, sharpness and colours.
Best regards, Leonid

Hello Foozi !
That's a great picture, I like the bird and the plant he is sitting on, with these yellow berries. You captured the bird in a great pose, and I also like the composition, the POV, the BG and the natural colors. I really like it !

Merhaba Foozi,nefis bir ışık ve nefis bir kompozisyon.Keşke baksaydı demeyeceğim,renkler harika,ellerine sağlık:)

very beautiful and sharp composition Foozi !
perfect sharp and fine details , very good natural light !
well done !

Hi Fozzi,

The Bubul is impressive. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the bird. The small branches are framing well the bird. The intensity of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hi Foozi again,
Beautiful shot, absolutely great lights, composition and sharpness. Maybe the bird's angle isn't easy to judge his / her ID, but the photo itself is excellent with this pose. Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards, László
