Black-throated Sunbird Post Afternoon Tea



This Black-throated Sunbird was seen hopping along the pavement just outside the coffeeshop on the way to Fraser Hill town centre. The sunbird sipped away at the flowers, with super fast wingbeats. I had just finished afternoon coffee, going through my old edition of  Craig Robson's "A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia." Which goes to prove that it is always best to sip coffee and have muffins (from Kuala Kubu Bahru's Teng Wun Bakery) before one starts birdwatching:)
