Cinnyris chalybeus - Klein-rooibandsuikerbekkie
I had the privilege to photograph these beautiful little birds this weekend at our camp site. Not so easy to photograph as they are very lively and hardly keep still.
I saw them feeding on lots of insects and nectar.
Eggs: 1-3
Weight: 6-10g
Height: 12cm
