Search for the Red-Whiskered Bulbul

I first learned of the Red-Whiskered Bulbul while searching for cool-looking birds on YouTube. My task at the time was to create GIF sets of pretty birds to share on the because birds Tumblr. I came across this Bulbul and was enticed by its striking plumage and cute red cheeks.

After a few weeks of anticipation, the planned day had finally arrived and we made our way to the Huntington Botanical Gardens to see the Red-whisked Bulbul.
