Birds of the Park - Little Spiderhunter

 It amazes me why the Little Spiderhunter that comes regularly to the yellow Ixora coccinea flowers does not come in pairs.  The Malays call it 'Kelicap Jantung' and it produces a nice 'chirp,chirp,chirp,chirp' notes.  Besides preying on soft insects like ants and spiders, it loves to sip the nectar from the ixora flowers and in so doing does fine acrobatic show.
Here's more pics of the bird for the album.
