Flights of Fancy eBook Excerpt: Yellow Vented Bulbul Spotted in Maligcong, Bontoc

The Yellow Vented Bulbul is fairly numerous in Maligcong but I'm not one to take them for granted.   They seem to tolerate the presence of the smaller birds like the Olive Backed Sunbirds who have taken a liking for the same spots in the homestay -- the guava and avocado trees in particular.   I think they're equally guilty of taking ripe chili peppers from the plants along the driveway, too, very tolerant of the spiciness of the small berries.   But interesting to note that they seem to leave enough for our consumption -- I guess that's nature's way of balancing things out.  | © 2018 Oggie Ramos | Taken with a Nikon B700, Handheld, Manual Mode
