What a bird! Colored with every color. I have a bird book of India that our good friend, now in Iran, sent me. I shall look it up. No worry about saturated over. Perfect.

it looks like a juvenile Sunbird.

Thanks to share

ciao Deffra

This is male Purple Sunbird in non-mating season, Biswarup. The other guys guessing that it is a juvenile chick are wrong. In the non-breeding season, the male loses its uniform blue colour with the metallic sheen and turns patchy like this.
