As with most birds, sunbird also show sexual dimorphic. Male sunbird usually have a very bright & colourful plumage and female usually duller as compare. Is really difficult to identify female sunbird on the field if they are not with the male sunbird. They looks very similar to Olive-backed sunbird & about the same size too!
Male Crimson Sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja) with very beautiful plumage.

Most of the time, woodpecker are found pecking on tree branches high up the tree. I saw a pair of Laced woodpecker (Picus vittatus) foraging on the ground. On a closer look, is actually a female laced woodpecker escorting her just fledged chick. At times it will stop & feed the chick.

One of my favourite snack is belinjau chips, I like it best to go with sambal chili (chili with prawn paste). Belinjau or some called it Belinjo is from the tree Gnetum gnemon. Some birds like it too, such as Black Naped Oriole (Oriolus chinensis).
Asian Koel feeding on Belinjau too.
