I agree with you Heksie, where was this taken though?

Hi Heksie. :gflower:

I'm no Birder (wish i was)...As far as I can make out, the Scarlet Chested Sunbird or juvenile are "red" chested. To me it look more like a Juvenile Marico Sunbird. :redface: Might be wrong. :think:

Neither am I Philip1, but the red chest applies to the male Scarlet-chested Sunbird - juvenile and adults, whilst the female has a dark chest, again female adult and juvenile. The male juvenile Marico Sunbird has a clear eyebrow, which I cannot see on this little bird. On the other hand, maybe one just cannot see it on this picture. I'm waiting for one of the experts to make a call on this birdie! :thumbs_up:
