The Orange -bellied Flowerpeckers enjoying the Jackfruit

Enjoying the aril of an over-ripe Jackfruit

Male of the species
 It is one of the most colourful birds in the park.  They are attracted to the ripe fruits of the Nangka (Artocarpus heterophyllus).  On 25th of May, I was able to get pictures of them together.  This is important to reconfirm the identity of the birds.  The male is as usual in the bird kingdom more colourful than the female.  His orange chest and lower part of the body is a really colourful and attractive.  The female is duller.
