Himalayan (White-cheeked) Bulbul

Pycnonotus leucogenys


It was quite late into the afternoon and the light was fading fast. Nevertheless I took a couple of photos of the bird. To be sure I also used the flash but perhaps scared of the light it flew away. But I got this one. We can see the flash on its eye!
