The Bulbul and the mirror

Every year around April-May the red whiskered Bulbuls arrive. From their overall behavior it appears to be their breeding season. There is an old unoccupied house, which one particular pair seems to like. The balcony has a mirror. One Bulbul in particular seems to like watching itself in the mirror. It also flies up and down a few times and stares at the reflection. Then it flies away. It does this at least few times everyday. I have been observing this for the last 2 years. 

Photos are not great in terms of clarity due to the distance and an ordinary camera. Taken for record. What is of interest here is the behavior of this bird.
