Young Little Spiderhunter in close range
An early morning walk in the park this morning was well rewarded with an encounter of a young Little Spiderhunter. Before doing some serious harvesting of the oil palm fruits later in the day, I decided to recce the area to get some inkling of the tonnage of fruits to be harvested. Hearing the familiar call of the Spiderhunter at Zone C, I moved in quietly to get a glimpse. It was a little bird just learning to fly. The tiny young bird saw me but was quite friendly and allowed me to come close for a better view of its soft and not fully developed beak. It was among the Heliconia psittacorum's yellow bracts and flowers, experimenting with its custom-built beaks. The trick never fails here. Plant more heliconias to attract the Little Spiderhunter. You'll be surprised generation after generation will make the park their home. Here are up-close and personal pictures of the young chick.
