The Copper-throated SB is uncommonly encountered unless its nesting. It built nests in mangroves, away from prying eyes
and potential predators especially squirrels. Nests are built on tiny twigs and often above water. Females are drab brown just
like most other female sunbirds while male flaunts a bright copper throat (visible only if the sunrays shines on its throat). Retaining mangrove habitats are important for its survival.
