Brown-throated Sunbird Bathing

I was at Mandai last Sunday after the early morning rains and got to see this beautiful Brown-throated Sunbird (Anthreptes malacensis) bathing.
This sunbird take advantage of the water droplets for bathing.
Back to the top and balance itselfNot just preening, the sunbird uses their leg to spread the water onto their wings too.Another well shakeand is done!
Brown-throated sunbird are bigger in size comparing with other sunbirds found in Singapore such as Olive-back and Crimson sunbirds.
