“The above video clip shows the mating display and call of a male Crimson Sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja). He was trying to attract a female on a branch below him :
“The sunbird’s back feathers are fluffed out showing yellow down feathers not normally seen. The mating song was a continuous sweet shrill twittering that went on for at least 2 minutes. Too bad about the noise from the nearby construction site drowning out the mating song, know of anyone who can help to separate sounds?
