Crimson Sunbird

Aethopyga siparaja

Description:

Spotted this beautiful Sunbird in Khao Sok national park. They feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding the young. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time.
