Red whiskered Bulbul

Photographed this Bulbul carrying a cherry early in the morning, Wonder where did it find the fruit?
A Red whiskered Bulbul, sits on a ' Averrhoa bilimbi' tree. These song birds feed on fruit, nectar and insects. The loud and evocative call is a sharp kink-a-joo, and the song is a scolding chatter. Its voice is similar to a cheerful human whistling. In fact: a human whistling into bulbul nest will provoke a positive reaction from young chicks if present in the nest.

Photograph details: f/4.5, 1/80, ISO 80, pattern Metering.
