This bright red streak is what makes this flowerpecker conspicuous in the world of birds. Its underparts, however, are a bit less gorgeous. They are in black and white only. Unlike male scarlet-backed flowerpeckers, the females have olive-green plumage with a black tail, making them look like juveniles. Both sexes share the same gorgeous red streak.
