Adrian Lim photographed a Crimson-breasted Flowerpecker (Prionochilus percussus) catching a caterpillar and commented: “This Crimson-breasted Flowerpecker normally eats tiny fruits, but I found it eating a little caterpillar.”
This bird is a fruit-eater. Its diet includes nectar and pollen.
It is possible that the bird was taking the caterpillar to feed its chicks.
