A male displaying on an exposed post in the grounds of Kumul Lodge. The post is about 10m away from a feeding station where many female/immature sicklebills come to feed on the fruits provided by the lodge staff.

There is a bit of a whirring noise in the background which was the image stabilizer on the lens churning away as the video was rather impromptu through a hand-held still camera.
