Birdwatch album - Flowerpeckers

 Flowerpeckers are a delight to watch because they are tiny but colourful.  They make happy tunes in the park.  The one species that attracts me most is the Orang-bellied flowerpecker (Dicaeum trigonostigma dayakanum) of which the male of the species is very colourful.  Recently I have been successful in attracting them for a photoshoot session.  I made the jackfruit as the bait.  I waited patiently from a hideout  and in one morning was able to capture many shots of the male.
