Seychelles Bulbul

Hypsipetes crassirostris Newton, E, 1867

The Seychelles Bulbul (Hypsipetes crassirostris) is a member of the bulbul family of passerine birds. The species is related to the Grand Comoro Bulbul and the Moheli Bulbul. It is a common endemic species of the Seychelles, breeding on Mahé, Praslin, La Digue and Silhouette as well as some smaller islands. The Seychelles Bulbul is social, living in pairs, family groups or small flocks in forest and woodland from the sea to the mountains on granitic mountains. The species is omnivorous, taking fruit, flowers, eggs, and insects gleaned from foliage or hawked during short flights. They are very aggressive towards other birds species, chasing away birds as large as Green-backed Herons from areas that they are feeding in. Source: Wikipedia
