Birdwatch album - Little Spiderhunter

 The Little Spiderhunter is a daily visitor to the park without fail.  It is attracted by the ever flowering yellow Ixora coccinea flowers especially by its sweet nectar. It is a very jovial bird that announces its presence by its loud chirping voice. Malays call it "Kelicap" because of its prominent 'churp -churp' calls.  It is a very lovely bird to watch especially when hovering by the flowers to sip at the nectar.  It visits the flowering ixora shrub throughout the day at the park.
