Birds in Neighbourhood - 20

I get to see variety of birds in the back yard of my parents house in Udupi. I have captured few of them in my camera and here they are. One such beautiful bird is Purple-rumped Sun bird.



It is found mostly in Indian subcontinent. They are small in size less than 10 cms long, feeding mainly on nectar but sometimes take insects.
