Purple-Rumped Sunbird

Post is part of the project- Birds in the neighborhood. | Bird 28

These clicks are taken from various locations from 10 feet to 100 feet from my home in Warora (Dist: Chandrapur).

These beautiful small bird have a medium sized, thin, down curved bill and tubular tongue specially adapted to collect nectar from flowers. Males have dark maroon upper side with blue-green crown and purple rump patch.
