Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A small bird of forest and edge from the lowlands to low elevations in the mountains on the western Visayas. Has a fairly long and slightly curved bill, yellow underparts, and olive wings. Male has a black face, throat, and chest, with a purple mustache stripe and a green crown. Male is similar to Olive-backed Sunbird, but has a red spot on the chest and reddish coloration on the upper back and back of the head. The drab female resembles the female Handsome Sunbird, but lacks the yellow rump. Voice includes a jumbled, high-pitched song and a slightly wheezy, high-pitched “tsee-tsee-tsee.”
