Red-Whiskered Bulbul

Red-Whiskered Bulbul

I visited Huntington Library Gardens today, taking many photos of plants in the gardens. I also spotted several of these Red-Whiskered Bulbuls. They are birds native to Asia, with wild populations that have become established in Southern California. I was taking my new lens on its maiden voyage, so to speak, and so far I'm quite happy with it. This bird was shot at 400 mm, handheld.
