Purple Sunbirds

Male Purple Sunbird

The Purple Sunbirds are small and fast. They feed on nectar, like the hummingbirds. The male is bright blue and purple. Their female counterparts are brown with yellow undersides. You wouldn’t think they are the same species! At least, I didn’t!

Have a look at the pretty girl too, though not a sparkly one as the male:

Here I’m sharing the sunbirds of sunny Sri Lanka and my blog theme decided to do a snowfall on them!
