Olive-backed Sunbird

Today, while waiting for an appointment in Singapore, I was able to do a little birding in an enclosed courtyard with one tree growing in it. In that tree was a very active male Olive-backed Sunbird finding something to eat in the blossoms. Whatever else happens in a day, when a bird like that shows up, it's a good day.

In Hawaii the Ohia Lehua tree has blossoms similar to this, and is a member of the "Myrtle" family. So maybe this tree in Singapore is also in that family, but I don't know the specific name of this one.
