Mistletoebirds out and about

Caught male Mistletoebird (Dicaeum hirundinaceum) more or less in the open yesterday near Tyto lookout. Angle does justice to breast colour but misses the glorious dark blues on the back.

Female, from an earlier day, possibly seeking webs for one of the species' soft 'baby bootee' nests.
