The Orange-bellied Flowerpecker (Dicaeum trigonostigma ) 9 cm.

Although it is classified as a flowerpecker this small, colorful and very agile bird feeds mainly on ripened small cherries. Often seen foraging in a flock of up to a dozen birds but at times maybe just a pair.

The habitat are mainly in broadleaved , evergreen forest, gardens and caltivation up to approx 900 meters.

Here are some photos to share.

Have a good day. Cheers!
