Asian Fairy-bluebird – male feeding on Ficus benjamina

posted in: Feeding-plants | 0

“Many trees beginning to fruit at this area. Ten to 15 species of birds were feeding on the figs of the Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina). The Asian Fairy-bluebird (Irena puella malayensis) is not difficult to spot but hard to photograph as it is quite shy. However the call of the fruit was strong. Some images of the male while feeding on upper strata of the tree above and below.
