Juvenile Purple Rumped Sunbird

Today I have some photos of a cute juvenile Purple Rumped Sunbird to share here. In fact these photos are not recent, I took these last February.


Purple Rumped Sunbird -  Juvenile


Immature sunbirds are more peaceful than adults, so I feel they are easier to photograph too.

Found this on the same bush where I normally spot the adult sunbirds.

Juveniles are more round in shape and yellowish in color than adult birds. The actual length of the on I found was about 2 inches only.

Family: Nectariniidae
Species: Leptocoma zeylonica

Hope everyone liked this cute little bird.
