brown-throated sunbird @ chek jawa - Nov2012

A clear chirpy chirp diverted some attention away from the skies (its already the bird migratory season) above the Jejawi Tower towards a nearby coconut tree. It did not take long to spot who was making it. It was a brown-throated sunbird perched high on the tree. It would not have been visible from the ground and those on the Jejawi Tower, at about 20metres off the ground, were at a fabulous vantage point. Tiny as sunbirds usually are, a pair of binoculars would make observation a lot easier. There seemed to be another sunbird somewhere closeby and both were perhaps having a discussion.  

The bird kept on its chirp for about 3 minutes before flying off to another tree in the nearby forest behind the stand of nipah trees. 

When was the last time you were at Chek Jawa?
