Another series of images of the female Asian Koel (Eudynamys scolopacea) feeding on the fruits of the Cape York Tulipwood or Claudie Tulipwood (Harpullia ramniflora). This follows Jackie Ong’s earlier post on the Red-whiskered Bulbul (Pycnonotus jocosus) eating the same fruits LINK.

  1. I saw this bird near my place (Pasir Ris) the other day. It was with another black koel. Is the black the male and this speckled one the female?

  2. Yes, the male is black and the female speckled.
