The Olive-backed Sunbird - Female, ( Nectarinia jugularis ) 11.5 cm

The Female Sunbird  appeared after a short drizzle but the male was not in the same vicinity. It's bright yellow plumage was set against the dark green vegetation in the background. With the mid afternoon sun striking it's plumage the yellow color of it's plumage appeared florescent.

The habitat is usually open forest, magrove and gardens up to 900 meters.

Here are a few photos for sharing.

Have a nice day! Cheers!
