Black-breasted Myzomela (Banda M) Myzomela boiei: A few singles at Lorulun farm, Tanimbar (annabellae). A recent split from Scarlet Honeyeater M. chloroptera. Black Sunbird Leptocoma sericea: Fairly common on Ambon and Seram (aspasioides), and Kai (chlorolaema). Olive-backed Sunbird (Yellow-bellied S) Cinnyris jugularis: Locally common on Kai (keiensis) and Seram (clementiae). These all belong to the very different looking black-bellied group, which may best be split as a separate species. More
