Yellow Vented Bulbul Feeding

Yellow-vented bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier) is one of the most common bird in Singapore. Even it is so common, not many people have the chance to see how they feed their chicks and what they feed with. As with many other birds, seeds of Dillenia suffruticosa or commonly known as Simpoh Ayer is one of the main source of food for the chicks.
Spiders has been sighted quite regularly too.
At times, yellow-vented bulbul 'hi-jack' the food from spiders too. This bee was strangled on spiders web when it was fed to the chick.
