Feeding time

11 June 2011

We had the pleasure of seeing the Collared Sunbird feeding its chicks in the camp this morning, the adults frantically searched for small caterpillars under leaves and hidden in gaps in the bark of the trees.While the two fledglings constantly begged by calling and flapping their wings. As with humans I am sure they hope the fledglings grow up quick so they can get a bit of peace and quiet!

The brilliant optical phenomenon of iridescence seen on the Collared Sunbird's feathers makes them change colour as they zip in and out of the bushes.
