Hi,

Managed to get this at Sungei Buloh this afternoon.

Is this a Brown-throated Sunbird ? :think:

D70 + 70-300G + D70 built in flash

(argh....the leaves're in the way.... :angry: ...)



Thanks.

It looks like a very stressed Olive Backed Sunbird. ;)

looks like a plain (brown)-throated male.

The 2 most common sunbirds in Sungei Buloh are the copper throated and plain-throated. Olive-backed is rare inside Sungei Buloh :)
