The plan was to watch this one (on Celiba Speciosa, Floss Silk tree with pink flowers)

Purple Sunbird in Eclipse Plumage on Bauhinia tree, Celiba Speciosa, Floss Silk Tree, Pink flowers, in Delhi NCR

The Purple Sunbird in Eclipse Plumage  also known as the Yellow-bellied Sunbird. [Olive-backed Sunbird (Wikipedia) ]

Updated: This is Purple Sunbird (Cinnyris asiaticus) in eclipse plumage.

  1. Awwww🙂. Beautiful pictures as always. This afternoon I watched the CNN heroes award ceremony and there was one remarkable lady who helps war veterans by providing them with pet dogs. The bonds between humans and dogs is just amazingly beautiful!

  3. IHM, my university has teamed up with a charity called “Paws for Finals”. They bring in rescue dogs for the students to pet during finals week to relieve the stress of finals. I wonder if they will let us faculty pet them too!

    • And then there are people who start shrieking at the sight of a dog! One acquaintance used to say, “Actually it’s dogs’ teeth that scare me.” I tried explaining that we too have teeth and also legs and arms that cause far more injury to other animals, but presence of teeth, arms or legs is not an indication of being dangerous.
