Crimson Sunbird Having A Bath - A Crimson Sunbird Female Refreshing Herself With The Water Which

On first review – it looks like this Crimson Sunbird is having a lay down. It actually transpires, this Crimson Sunbird female is cleverly refreshing herself with the water which is stored in the petal of an ornamental banana flower. Almost as if nature creates a floral bath tub for her.

The crimson sunbird is a species of bird in the sunbird family which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding the young. Flight is fast and direct with most subird species being able to take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird. Generally though, they will usually perch to feed.

As can be seen in this photo captured by @rahulsinghclicks, Sunbirds are small, slender birds measuring less than 4 inches in length. The smallest sunbird is the teeny tiny black-bellied sunbird, which weighs only 5 grams or about 0.2 ounces.  It’s no surprise then that they can use flower petals as their personal bubblebath!
