Stripe-throated Bulbul after a bath

In the late morning of 8th July 2014, Dato’ Dr Amar-Singh HSS encountered a Striped-throated Bulbul (Pycnonotus finlaysoni finlaysoni) having a bath in Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands.

The two images accompanying this post show the bulbul just after the bath. No doubt the bird will be busy drying itself and preening its feathers to maintain them in top conditions.

The location was a public road through the primary forest at 1600m ASL.
