The balcony observer's 187th report- So hungry? 阿肥妳這麼餓嗎? (Pycnonotus sinensis)

by Tsao T-F October. 07, 2019 191 views
A Light-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus sinensis) called A-Pui visited my balcony in Taichung, Taiwan. She tried to look for fruits such as mulberry or paper mulberry (Broussonetia papyrifera), but she failed. Then she took off a fresh leaf and held in her mouth. 白頭翁阿肥來我的陽台,找不到果子吃,後來她刁下一片洋紫荊的嫩葉含在嘴裡。

She gave the leaf several bites and seemed to want to swallow it. 她嚼了幾口,一副要吞下去的模樣。

She did swallow the leaf. 她真的把葉子吞下去了。

Oh, are you so hungry, A-Pui? Too poor! 阿肥妳這麼餓嗎?太可憐了吧!
