Sun bird





Sorry for not being wordless ! :)

This little visitor is fairly common in my part of the country . They come in various colours . One of the most amazing things I find about these birds is the amount of noise they can make is so much louder than their size . With just about 2 inches of body length and another 1 inch for their long sharp beak curved at the end for the nectar , these are small birds , but can make themselves be heard loud and clear !!
Though I 'lie in wait ' in the morning to get an action shot of them hovering mid air like humming birds , it is as yet a mission unaccomplished !! :(

Happy Wordless Wednesday to all !!


P.S. Do enlarge for a better view of Pic 1 .

Your little visitors are so much more pleasant than the ones I get flying to my air-con ledge to poo poo everyday!!!

Hope all is well with you. You've been busy lately? :)

They're certainly cute little guys, and blissfully quiet over the internet ;-).

Great capture.

So many types of birds in this world! I'm so glad people post pictures of the ones I generally don't see...or may never see otherwise.

Wonderful pictures. Are they a type of humming bird? I see ours at times perched on the wire fence. Very rare to see them when they are not in motion.

Hi and thanks for your comments on my site - all very much appreciated.

We've only got Taxi for another two weeks before he returns back to the Police Kennels to start his training as a seach dog. We shall miss him very much as we've been 'puppy walking' him since he was 8 weeks old.

take care, Judyx
