A guest came to my yard at Taman Putra Prima 8A on this fine Sunday morning, attracted by my red ixora: the native Olive Backed Sunbird

    The Olive-backed Sunbird, Cinnyris jugularis, also known as the Yellow-bellied Sunbird, is a species of sunbird found from Southern Asia to Australia.

    The sunbirds are a group of very small Old World passerine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

    An olive backed sunbird was snap shot from my Nikon Coolpix with 42X zoom lens while harvesting nectar on brilliant red ixora flower at my yard this Sunday.
