The Coral trees are not only popular with the Hair-Crested Drongos, the local birds love them too. This is because the Coral tree flowers have a very high sugar content which are favourites of the nectar eating birds. The Japanese White-eye is one of them.
Because of the unusual shape of the Coral tree flowers, the birds have to peck through the base of the petals to get the nectar.
The Fork-tailed Sunbirds mainly feed on nectar and never miss such opportunities. The combination of the colourful little bird and the bright Coral tree flowers makes for perfect picturesque photos.
