Yellow-Vented Flowerpecker

My LIFER today, the 41th of birds at my backyard.
Yellow-vented Flowerpecker
(Dicaeum chrysorrheum)
Local name Sepah Puteri Rimba
Size (cm) 10
Habitat Forest edges

From a far I thought it was a juvenile starling because of white stripes at it’s chest, but the yellow colour at ventral aspect and the beak differentiate it.

Small size with short tail. Upperparts olive-green, underpart whitish streaked with olive green. Moustachial streak beak, undertail coverts yellow.
