Crimson Sunbird (male)

The Crimson Sunbird is a species of bird in the sunbird family which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time.Crimson Sunbird is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India to Indonesia and the Philippines.

The adult male has a crimson breast and maroon back. The rump is yellow and the belly is olive. The female has an olive-green back, yellowish breast and white tips to the outer tail feathers.

The Crimson Sunbird is the national bird of Singapore. This shot was taken during my trip to Jim Corbett early 2012 @ Camp River Wild.
