    1. Thanks for your comment. I am not very familiar with identifying female sunbirds myself as they look almost alike among the different sunbird species. I saw the photos of the sunbird on your blog, and I think it could be a female olive-backed sunbird.

      I was comparing the photos I found online just now that show female olive-back sunbirds and female purple-throated sunbirds. It seems that the yellow and olive colours are slightly more prominent for female olive-backed sunbirds, compared to the slightly toned down colours of female purple-throated sunbirds.
