“Here is one video which I have taken of a Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) enjoying a leaf bath shortly after I have watered the plants in my garden on 22nd Feb 2015, right in the midst of a prolonged dry spell.
“The bird was soaking itself with water retained on the leaves of Money Plant (Epipremnum aureum Cultivar: Golden Queen), Philodendron ‘Golden Emarald’ and Bird’s Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus) before flying away to preen itself.
“Note that the video is played at half speed.
“On a related note, there was an earlier account of a juvenile Javan Myna sipping water from the leaves of plants that I have just watered and enjoying a water bath at a grass patch LINK.”
