“Been wanting to document this feeding that I have seen a number of times… feeding by the Grey-breasted Spiderhunter (Arachnothera modesta modesta) on the nectar of Wild Banana (Musa ornata) (above).
“The bird will probe every flower rapidly, often not putting the beak fully in but, I suspect, using the long tongue to get to the nectar (above).
