Purple Rumped Sunbird

The Purple-Rumped Sunbird (Leptocoma zeylonica) is a sunbird found in the Indian subcontinent. Like other sunbirds, they are small in size, feeding mainly on nectar but sometimes eat insects, particularly when feeding their young. They can hover for short duration but usually perch to feed. They build a hanging pouch nest made up of cobwebs, lichens and plant material. Males are brightly coloured but females are olive above and yellow to buff.
