白頭翁Chinese Bulbul (Baitouwong)

白頭翁
 
白頭翁的額頭至頭頂為純黑色且富有光澤,兩眼上方至頭部後方為白色,形成一白色枕環,此白環在黑色的頭部非常醒目,老鳥的枕羽(後頭部)更加潔白。白頭翁活潑且不怕人,喜食昆蟲,種子和水果,屬雜食性。雄鳥胸部灰色較深,雌鳥淺淡;雄鳥頭部後面的白色極為清晰醒目。仔細聽聽林間的鳥叫聲,若聽到如「巧克力、巧克力」的聲音,可能就是白頭翁喔!
白頭翁喜歡將巢築在相思樹或榕樹上,平均壽命約10到15年。
 
Chinese Bulbuls (Baitouwong) have a shiny black forehead, and an eye-catching white disk-like area starting from above both eyes and extending to the back of the head. The older the birds are, the whiter the back of the head (also known as neck feathers). These bulbuls are cheery, and not afraid of humans. They are polyphagia, and prefer insects, seeds, and fruit. The males have grayer chests than the females, and the white neck feathers are rather bright. If one pays close attention toward the sounds in the woods, the bulbuls' sound is like 'Qiao-Ke-Li, Qiao-Ke-Li'.
Chinese Bulbuls like to build their nests on the Acacia confuse (Memory Tree) or the Chinese Banyan. Their average lifespan is between 10 and 15 years.
