Purple Sunbird - দুর্গাটুনটুনি

The purple sunbird (Nectarinia asiatica) is a small sunbird species with a slender, curved bill and a tubular tongue, which is well adapted for feeding on the nectar of flowers. The male purple sunbird has two distinct types of plumage. The breeding male is characterised by the metallic bluish-black body, and the tuft of crimson and yellow feathers under each wing. In contrast, the non-breeding male purple sunbird has a much duller ‘eclipse’ plumage that resembles the female, with yellow underparts and a dark line of feathers running down the centre of the throat and breast.

Cuckoo's lay their eggs into Sunbirds' home. This indicated how strong survivor they are. Like this bird always.
