The Seychelles bulbul (Hypsipetes crassirostris) is an endemic species living in some islands of this Indian Ocean archipelago. Very territorial and aggressive bird, it does not hesitate to attack any intruder, human being included. It’s equipped with an orange big and robust bill used, besides for defence, also for catching insects and biting coriaceous fruits, not to forget for the ruthless robberies of eggs in the nests of other birds © Giuseppe Mazza
