Fledgling Olive-backed Sunbird and Noni flowers

On 2oth July Lena Chow sent in this video of an Olive-backed Sunbird (Nectarinia jugularis) fledgling feeding on the Noni flowers (Morinda citrifolia).

Crimson Sunbirds (Aethopyga siparaja) also feed on the flower nectar LINK. On the other hand the fruits are taken by a number of birds: see HERE and HERE.
