The Little Spider Hunter Bird is a species of long-billed nectar feeding birds that live in South Eastern Asia. Unlike typical sunbirds the males and females are very similar in their plumage, they have a distinctive long beak which other sunbirds don’t, the males have an all black beak but the female has a paler colour to the lower mandible. They enjoy being near nectar bearing trees and they are also very good at pollinating the plants they visit. They make their nests from cobwebs and vegetable fibre which they suspend under a banana leaf or similar broad leaf plants using spiders silk for glue and they normally lay two eggs.
