It hoovers like a hummingbird
Little Spiderhunter - hoovering like a hummingbird
Its behaviour is just like a hummingbird especially when it hoovers in front of the heliconia bracts to have a go at the nectar. But there aren't any hummingbird at the park. Instead we have an equivalent in the Little Spiderhunter that makes the park its home. With its bill gently curved it makes good fit into the shape of the bract, thus enabling it to enjoy the nectar and other nutrient insects gathered at the base of the bracts. Surprisingly, I do notice it on many occasions piercing the bract from outside to reach at the nectar.
