Copper-throated Sunbird – mangrove forest

posted in: birds, Sex | 0


Copper-throated Sunbirds (Leptocoma calcostetha) are fairly common at this site and I saw them 5-6 times over a 4+ hour period.

But imaging this beautiful, fast moving and activity feeding bird under the mangrove canopy is difficult.

Some images of the male – all three above…

…and female (above).
