A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New

Today I have learned something new!
Malachite Sunbird Appearance

(The male and female have different plumage). … The breeding male’s plumage is bright metallic green in colour, with darker wings and a small yellow pectoral patch.

The eclipse colouring (non-breeding), upper parts are brown, and the underparts are yellow, speckled with green.
