Location :trail in forest, Kledang-Sayong Forest Reserve, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia
Date : 24 August 2020
English synonyms:Crimson breasted Flowerpecker
Bird Family :Dicaeidae - Flowerpeckers & Mistletoebird
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :This is another important bird tree for which I have no ID. The fruit is a favourite of leafbirds and bulbuls, as well as some flowerpeckers. It is a small tree and grows at the forest edge or along trails as it prefers full sun. I have watched birds feeding at it for decades. - Amar
