Red-vented Bulbul - Colombo, Sri Lanka

Red-vented Bulbuls (Pycnonotus cafer) are quite common in Colombo and they are often seen feeding on fruit trees in people's gardens. I was setting up a hide to photograph a Brown-headed Barbet when one of them perched on a branch close to me. It was feeding on some fruit which I thought was a bit too big for it to swallow whole. The bird didn't seem too bothered and it made for a slightly different shot.
