Black Skimmer - Martha's Vineyard
Had to dodge security guards ( yes, security guards on the BEACH !) and hike to a remote spot were this cool bird flew back and forth practically begging to have its picture taken.

60D and 100-400mm - 1/1250 f8, 400mm, ISO 320
Great image Islander!  I can't wait to get back up to the Cape!

Very nice Serendipity!  I wish we had some bulbuls here!  They almost seem like a cross between a cardinal and a wax wing..  Beautiful!
Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) that visited our garden yesterday for just a few seconds, luckily I had the camera in hand.

Really nice shot of a beautiful bird. We have bulbuls here but they look somewhat different. Thanks for sharing. :)

edit: Here is what they look like in Hawaii.
Huh! Never thought of them like that! So when the rain abates and the clouds part (not the sea!!!) hopefully they will return to my garden...

Unless I move, I fear they will never be in my garden!   Looking again, perhaps they are even a Cardinal, Waxwing, Small Woodpeckerish looking creature... I do like them...  :)

Nope, bulbuls. Very different. Look at the beak.

Yes, agreed about the beak.  I almost didn't comment on it because of the beak but the facial markings are somewhat woodpeckerish, no?  It's a great bird, I wish we had them here!

True, but they don't peck wood here in India. I guess their food is in abundance outside tree trunks. They need to pick the worms out of the dirt. Hence long beaks. Cardinals seem to have beaks that are used to break seeds. Think about it - if you were a worm and the climate was dry, where would you go? To a place that was damp. So inside a trunk makes sense. Now somebody posted a picture of a woodpecker listening to sounds in a tree trunk. Sure, that is human imagination, but I am sure the bird could hear the worms.

 :)

OK, so replace "I am sure" with "I believe" :)

Agreed!  Interestingly enough, Serendipity posted an image of a Cardinal eating a bug!  I thought they were strictly seed eaters.. I think perhaps more birds are omnivores than I once thought!

That entirely depends on what you consider to be a vegetarian diet ;)

Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) by alabang, on Flickr

The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment, lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations. Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.
