Crimson Sunbird’s contact call and nectar feed

Lena Chow‘s video clip below shows a Crimson Sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja) responding to another, which was calling on a nearby tree (you can hear the other call briefly at the start of the video). So this is probably a contact call? The images above shows the sunbird moments before the video, sipping from a Powderpuff Plant (Calliandra emarginata) sipping nectar from the flowers.

  2. Hi there,

    I know you’re working hard on besgroup.org, so I’ll keep this brief.

    My name is Karoline and I worked for several years as a garden landscaper before taking to
    freelance writing. In my work as a backyard architect, my focus was on creating a flourishing
    environment for wildlife. As a freelance writer, I advise others on these issues and I would like to
    contribute an article to your website on this topic.

    Did you know that bees are responsible for 80% of pollination, with one bee colony able to pollinate up to 300 million plants a day? If we all did a little more to encourage bees to our garden, we could help to keep their population thriving, thereby helping the overall ecosystem to flourish.

    My proposal is to write an article encouraging homeowners to do just that. I would like to offer
    advice to your readers on how to create a bee-friendly garden.

    The article would be 100% original, exclusive to you and tailored to your readers. I will include
    references within the piece to ensure it has credibility.

    Are you interested? Do let me know as I would love to work with you.

    With warm regards

    Karoline
