A breeding pair of Ospreys.... breeding!

Shot with SX-50, F8.0, ISO100, 1/400 sec, 1200mm equivalent focal length.

Nice work there with the SX-50 ... Looks like a great P&S.

I came across a grey heron the other day in the local park being very tolerant of the people and dogs walking past
Nice image Hannes!  I'm pretty certain this is a breeding aged Great Blue Heron however.  Unless you are from overseas somewhere, I'm not aware of any "Grey Heron" in the US... I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain.  Nice image, none the less!

Thanks! This is however fairly central London, UK (Battersea park) where there is at least one pair but probably more herons nesting

I suppose it might be a blue but that'd be pretty rare in Europe as far as I've understood it. Magnificent bird none the less

Philippine Bulbul (Hypsipetes philippinus) by alabang, on Flickr


The Philippine Bulbul (Hypsipetes philippinus) is a songbird species in the bulbul family (Pycnonotidae). It is often placed in the genus Ixos, but is better retained in Hypsipetes as long as this is not entirely merged into Ixos, as it is quite closely related to the type species of Hypsipetes, the Black Bulbul (H. leucocephalus).[1]

It is endemic to the Philippines. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests; on Mount Kitanglad on Mindanao for example it is abundant in any kind of primary forest at least between 500 and 2,250 m ASL.[2]

Fledglings of the Philippine Bulbul were recorded on Mindanao in late April, but the breeding season seems to be prolonged as females with ripe ovarian follicles were still found in April and May. Territorial songs are heard at lower altitudes as late as May, while further upslope the birds are silent at that time of year and presumably engaged in breeding activity. The Besra (Accipiter virgatus) has been recorded as a predator of young Philippine Bulbuls, and this or other goshawks might also catch adult birds.[3]

A common and adaptable bird as long as sufficient forest remains, it is not considered a threatened species by the IUCN.[4]
