Balbul Sabah Malaysian bird


A bird hard to photo as it does not sit long and moves very often , brown back feathers, belly white feathers,black tiny beak with white cheeks, tail feathers white with dark brown tips. black feet. i believe 6 inches plus in height maybe about 3 to 4 inches in width.... aggressive bird towards others, raids other birds nests...maybe for their eggs. They make multiple sounds...and a bit loud than most birds in my yard.


Most seem to be living on tops of mango trees an d make round oval nests with hole on side about 2 to 3 inches wide and width.


out of 32 pictures these are the only two clearest, others faded and blurred, the bird simply does not stay perched very long making taking a picture challenging.
