Male and female Orange-bellied Flowerpecker
Male Orange-bellied Flowerpecker Dicaeum trigonostigma
It is very interesting to watch a pair of Orange-bellied Flowerpecker enjoying the over-ripe jackfruit. The over-ripe fruit is normally frequented by squirrels, butterflies, tree lizards and many kinds of insects. After having a bite the flowerpeckers would normally rest at a nearby branch to swipe their beaks and take a little rest before going for another round of eating. It is the male of the species that appear delightfully attractive with its bright orange breast and metallic blue face, wings and tail. The female has a dull olive-green upperparts. The underparts of the female body are a pale yellow and without the striking orange breast of the male.
