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.
