A shiny Purple Sunbird (Cinnyris-asiaticus) sits on the branch of a Scarlet Cordia tree with its glossy metallic blue plumage shining brightly against the orange-red flowers of the tree. The breeding male has purple-black underparts which can be clearly seen in the picture. Its bill is open because he’s making chirrupy birdcalls to attract a female.
