We are all on a learning journey, and ideally we learn from each other here in this forum.
But there's no substitute for self motivation, and ones own desire to learn..And then there's the internet ;-)
Keep that enthusiasm alive,

It certainly is a Crested Himalayan Bulbul, Goldy.
I am happy to know that one of my pictures confirmed your search for the ID of this bird.
It is a delightful image of this bird perched atop a plant and singing away merrily. You have captured the expression of joy on its face very effectively.
The features of this species of Bulbuls are very clear and distinct in this image.
Thanks for thinking of me in your note.

Great POV, pose, BG and lighting in this capture of a Crested Bulbul.
The spice of life is to learn and benefit by it and most of us do this on this wonderful site, but we can't do this without some enthusiasm and this is something you have too, Goldy!
TFS this fine image and your enthusiasm!

Splendida cattura, ogni giorno possiamo fare una piccola conquista ed aggiungere nuove conoscenze, con l'entusiasmo, la curiosità e l'umiltà non si finisce mai d'imparare. Complimenti per queste doti ed altre che tu certamente hai e con le quali contagi gli amici di TN. Molto bella la comnposizione e la posa, molto belli i colori e BG. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Il est très mignon ce petit oiseau, qui à l'air de chanter au moment de ta prise de vue
Merci, pour ce spectacle

You are so right! I know I have learned more about nature and photography in the past two year here on TN then I learned in all the previous years. It's wonderful how we all have much we can learn and something to teach others. I have loved Bulbuls since I saw them in India but I've not seen this one before. You captured him in a wonderful pose showing off the crest and lovely eye so well. Opened beaks are always my favorites.

I'm not sure why, but this fellow has the look of a surprised student trying to give the teacher the correct answer when he has no idea what the subject is due to a wandering mind! It's got that perpetual surprised look, even, almost, what did I do now attitude...
Gotta love those shots like these - thanks for sharing.

Hello Goldy, very nice bird, the pose and composition is very good and the background is nice. Too bad about the line though. But nonetheless a very good shot!

the learnings continue and your doing great shots of birds,
excellent image of this Bulbul with fine POV & DOF,
for the framing i would give a little bit less space at the back
of the bird and a little bit more infront of the bird,
infront wher he is looking, the luminosity is wonderful
and excellent sharpness and details, TFS
