Bulbuls feeding on nectar

In a recent posting I mentioned Red Wattlebirds feeding on nectar from a
flowering plum tree. This morning there were 8 Red-whiskered Bulbuls in the
same tree, methodically taking nectar from the flowers for at least two
hours. At the same time, 3 Crimson Rosellas were munching the flowers. I'm
sure the tree, which is directly across the road from my home office
window, hasn't created this much interest among sweet-toothed birds in
previous years (not counting the fruit).
