I had taken these photograph in Gayzing, West Sikkim on 19/6/2012 (dd/mm.yyyy)  

The photographs are of Crimson Sunbird, which I had taken near Gayzing, Sikkim (West), using a Sony DSC-HX 100V camera.  

Sikkim is a bird watchers paradise, where you will find the rarest and themost beautiful birds in enchanting natural surroundings.

The Crimson Sunbird (Aethopyga siparaja) is a species of bird in the sunbird family which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time.

Crimson Sunbird is a resident breeder in tropical southern Asia from India to Indonesia. Two eggs or three eggs are laid in a suspended nest in a tree. This species is found in forest and cultivation.

Crimson Sunbirds are tiny, only 11 cm long. They have medium-length thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding.

The adult male has a crimson breast and maroon back. The rump is yellow and the belly is olive. The female has an olive-green back, yellowish breast and white tips to the outer tail feathers.

    Yeah it truly is hilarious how troubles similar to this one start looking unbelievably pointless when compared to the world news. Another section of the cold war, the actual real war that erupts, Russia-China fuel offer axis… Nonetheless here we are with your socialmedia issues, – may we ever see the globe has transformed? I’m not indicating that which you write about is inconsequential, I’m declaring a certain amount of detachment is healthy. Thanks, Sarah @
