The pull of the Parrot flower
Crimson Sunbird - female
The Parrot flower (Heliconia psittacorum) certainly has a strong magnetic pull to many tiny birds. They came dropping by at the Heliconia 'Golden Torch' too. The' not so often' seen female species of the Crimson Sunbird visited the flower unaccompanied by the male of the species. The sharp beaks of the Crimson Sunbird and the Little Spiderhunter punctured the bottom part of the heliconia bracts to get direct access to the nectar.
