Red-vented Bulbul

Pycnonotus cafre bengalensis


A batch of these Bulbuls were spotted again the other day on the same cherry tree. What drew my attension was how they had to struggle to swallow the ripe cherries due to their oval shape. After juggling for 5-8 times only could it swallow the fruit.
