Black-rumped Flameback - Part 2

A Black-rumped Flameback photographed in Colombo, Sri Lanka

Out of all the birds found in Sri Lanka, the Black-rumped Flameback is one of the most striking in terms of colour.  It's bright red back makes it relatively easy to identify. However it can be mistaken with the Greater Flameback. More info on this species can be found in one of my previous posts at http://devwijewardane.blogspot.com/2009/11/black-rumped-flameback.html

We are fortunate to have a pair of these birds visit our garden on a very frequent basis. These images were all captured at home.

More images inside.
