Newly identified bird in the garden

This is a Crimson-Backed Sunbird.  The reason it took so long to identify it is because he's a tiny little person, my eyes aren't that great any more, and they move quickly.  But today, I was able to watch him for a while.  Yay!

They don't have hummingbirds here.  This is the closest thing.   This one is about 8 cm long.  Jumps quickly from flower to flower.
