Green-tailed sunbird

So I have a ciggie spot in the garden outside my room here. I noticed a flash of colour and rushed back to get my CoolPix (lol).

The scene. Cold, dead of winter. A wall of Bergenia

The bird, pic from web, because mine aren’t as good

I mistook it (before identifying it, because of the way it was flying and feeding) for a big fat hummingbird. It’s the Green-tailed sunbird, from approx here and north into the Sikkim and Nepal.

Here’s the action. Was nice
