Purple Rumped Sunbird Family Feeding Their Baby
Feeding a baby Sunbird is not an easy job for its parents. The baby bird is always hungry and crying for food. It is a restless hard work for the parents of the Sunbird to feed their baby. Though Purple-rumped Sunbirds are nectar eaters, I observed that on a few occasions, he was carrying small insects in his bill for the baby. Probably the parents know that protein is very important for the fledgling activities of a baby bird.
