Plain flowerpecker

Binomial name: Dicaeum minullum, Robert Swinhoe, 1870

The Plain Flowerpecker (Dicaeum minullum) is a species of bird in the Dicaeidae family.

It is found in the central Himalayas, through western Indonesia to Taiwan.

Description

These birds are tiny (9 cm long) and there is no marked difference between the males and females. The subspecies found in northeastern India, extending into Myanmar, Laos and southern China is called olivaceum by earlier authors but is treated by Rasmussen as a separate species Dicaeum minullum (which includes the population minullum from Hainan Island and is now termed as the Plain Flowerpecker in the more restricted sense).

Behaviour and ecology

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.
