Antics of an Olive-backed Sunbird

posted in: Collision-Reflection, Sunbirds | 2

“I was up in Langkawi in January 2009 and in the hotel parking area one morning watched an Olive- backed Sunbird (Cinnyris jugularis) fly to the driver’s window of a parked car, look in and then transfer to the driver’s wing mirror alongside it. He clung to the base and admired himself. He then flew round to another car parked on the left next to it, and did exactly the same thing. He then moved on to three more cars all parked in the same row and again repeated what he had done at the first two cars.

“I wondered why, and why he did not look in at the other windows or the wing mirrors on the passenger seat side.”
