I took this photo too quickly, not checking my function settings and it's a little blurry. The juvenile on the left is waiting for its parent to drop some apple into its wide-open bill!
The juvenile's eye-ring is narrower and yellowish pink
The juvenile chews on a piece of fruit which it pecked from the apple itself
Mama/papa looks on
And also digs in!
Both birds having their fill
On closer inspection, the juvenile is still quite fluffy
The African Red-eyed Bulbul is very common and near-endemic. Its food is mainly fruit, also nectar, insects and flower petals. It's call is distinctive - "Wake up, Gregory!"- and can be heard very early in the morning - in our garden - before sunrise.
I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday here
Happy Wednesday to you all!
