super soaraway sunbirds

Thattekad was great for the full suite of local sunbird species - Loten's, Purple, Crimson-backed & Purple-rumped - often close-up, attending flowering plants in forest clearings. While it's impossible to capture their real beauty on camera, they a least gave me the chance to try on multiple occasions.
