Beautiful Sunbird

Cinnyris pulchellus (Linnaeus, 1766)

The Beautiful Sunbird, Cinnyris pulchella (formerly placed in the genus Nectarinia), is a sunbird. The sunbirds are a group of very small Old World passerine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Flight is fast and direct on their short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time. Source: Wikipedia
