Mrs. Gould's sunbird

Another 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....

A juvenile, waiting for this colours to appear....

Look at those colours!!

Here he is in flight


whereas the female is less colourful, she is a lovely olivaceous colour.
