Brown-throated Sunbird and banana flowers

posted in: Feeding-plants, Sunbirds | 0

Derrick Cheong’s image of the Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) about to harvest nectar from the banana flowers (Musa cultivar) adds another animal that benefits from this nectar.

An earlier post lists Cave Nectar Bat (Eonycteris spelaea), Spotted House Geckos (Gekko monarchs) and spiderhunters.

This post is a cooperative effort between Birds, Insects N Creatures Of Asia and BESG to bring the study of birds and their behavior through photography and videography to a wider audience.
