Langkawi Bird Watching: Copper-Throated Sunbird

A lucky morning to be able to see and photograph a female and male Copper-Throated Sunbird Leptocoma calcostetha. After four hours of waiting for another bird at one area in the mangroves, at least I didn't return home empty handed.

My lifer! This sunbird belonging to Nectariniidae is not a commonly sighted sunbird in Langkawi.
