When you venture into the wondrous world of feathered miniatures, you will find yourself engulfed in brightly colored wonders that have the power to mesmerize anyone who is passionate about feathered miniatures. Today, we’d like to introduce you to some of the younger members of the sunbird family. They are easily identifiable thanks to their distinctive smooth red and green fringe coats. Living mainly in Southern Asian tropical forests and big gardens, they are well-known by the name Crimson sunbirds (Aethopyga siparaja).
These tiny flame-colored flying creatures are speedy and can leap into the air directly due to their short wings. The nectars they produce are their primary source of nutrition. In addition to that, during the mating season they have a higher demand for protein. So they can put insects into their portions. In general, they are quite friendly and favorable, and their calls are characterized by being floaty, short, fast, and high-pitched.
During the breeding season, crimson sunbirds are able to pick up some insects and worms in addition to the sweet nectars they collect with their curved beaks that point downward. The males can be distinguished from the females by the presence of two distinct dark-blue stripes under their bills. The upper parts of their bodies are distinguished by the velvet rouge, but the lower parts are frequently a smoky green or gray color.
Because females spend the majority of their lives tending to the young, their plumage tends to be less vibrant than that of males. They are better able to conceal themselves from potential predators as a result of the dullness. They are able to conceal themselves under leaves and branches thanks to their velvety coverings, which have a mixture of green and yellow tones.

Furthermore, they don’t have to impress the male ones. As a result, the muted tones of their coats are not a disadvantage.
Crimson sunbird couples usually build their nest on short trees, low twigs, and sturdy fern fronds. They assemble these oval-shaped sanctuaries for their eggs and young by collecting branches and putting them together.
Blessed with a long life span of about sixteen to twenty years, Crimson sunbirds remain in enough quantity to reproduce and are sorted to being Least Concern. As long as we respect the environment in which they live and do not engage in any illegal activity that exploits them, we are free to simply admire their beauty without being obligated to engage in any form of conservation.
