LOOK WHO IS BACK. Mrs. Gould's sunbird

LOOK WHO IS BACK. Mrs. Gould's sunbird, is just last few weeks turning back up in Hong Kong. A migrant bird - also a sunbird - that you may be lucky enough to see (think Tai Po Kau nature trails, early morning) is Mrs. Gould's sunbird (Aethopyga gouldiae). This is the male, and he is a striking fellow....

From David Diskins' notes "Scarce migrant in variable numbers in late winter & spring, 5 Jan - 6 Apr, coinciding with the flowering of Coral trees Erythrina sp. Increasing".


Look at those colours!!

Here he is in flight
