Yellow-vented Flowerpecker feeding on mistletoe fruits

An adult Yellow-vented Flowerpecker feeding on fruits of the Malayan Mistletoe (Dendrophthae pentandra) (above and below).

The close-up below shows that the bill is not all black and the base is still orange suggesting that this is an immature (sub-adult) bird.

Below is a sub-adult bird.
