[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Black-throated Sunbird (Aethopyga saturata) from beautiful Ta Nung Valley at Dalat platelau.

Its main habitat is primary forest, heavily disturbed forest and regenerating secondary forest, dense jungle edge, scrub, secondary growth, gardens and along shady streams. At 820–2200 m; down to 305 m in winter.

It feeds on nectar, including that from Aeschynanthus, Rhododendron and Lantana, and perhaps pollen; also arthropods. Forages singly and in pairs, from canopy down to understorey, sometimes on ground. Nectar-robs flowers.
