Careya arborea, Wild guava, (Local name: kavalu, daddala, dolli)
 
We watched this flowering wild guava tree attracting a group of  tiny sun birds (a forest kind), very frequently to feed on its nectar.
Looks like this tree can be grown to attract birds. Hope its not intoxicant
 
Info: The tree can survive even after the forest fire.
  
Habitat: Open grasslands bordered by thick forest vegetation,
On top of Kumara Parvatha, Kukke Subramanya
Western Ghats
