Here is a mini-series, featuring the Sunbirds that are presently nesting in our garden, whilst also living mainly off the nectar they harvest from one small shrub we have planted not far from our front steps...the shrub's popular name is "First Love"!
The first couple are the Brown-throated Sunbird. The male [top image] is most handsome. The female is elegant and hard-working. Seeing them both together on the shrub suggests they already have chicks in the nest.
