    Juvenile Crimson Sunbird. Blackish malar strip and black undertail. Olive-backed sunbird has much more white in undertail.

    Kok hui – many thanks for the additional information & correction of the id – I will add these information into my field guide for future reference!

    i was confounded by the blackish malar, but couldnt (wouldnt) even thought to match it to crimson sunbird since it looked so different… :doh_alamak: :oops:
