More Tarap Eaters

The biggest of the birds that come to the feast is the Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris), there's a semi-resident pair of them in the neighbourhood.

At least two species of bulbuls - the Olive-winged (Pycnonotus plumosus) (above)  
and the very common Yellow-vented (Pycnonotus goiavier) (below)

The smallest - the Orange-bellied Flowerpeckers (Dicaeum trigonostigma)
sometimes feed on the wing, hovering like humming birds. The photo below is 
that of a female (or possibly a juvenile). The bottom photo shows a mature male.
