The male Olive-backed sunbird

I am pleased today to see the Olive-backed sunbird chirping away in the garden.  It is the male of the species that was busy sipping the early morning nectar from the flowers of the Chinese hat plant ( Holmskioldia sanguinea).  In Bintulu they are also regular visitors to the Kambatik Park.   I have shared a little story about them in the Kuching garden here .
