Do you know how a beautiful sunbird looks?
Most of the time, the Splendid Sunbird lives and breeds in West and Central Tropical Africa. Also seen in lush savannas, gardens, and coastal thickets. The males and females of these birds look very different from each other. Male birds have colorful, multicoloured coverts and black bellies, making them look pretty dark. Females have olive-brown upper parts, yellow streaks, and a pale stripe around the eye.This sunbird is about 3–14 cm (5–512 in) long and has a fairly long, bent bill.
Splendid Sunbirds (Cinnyris Coccinigastrus) are 15 cm long and have medium-long, thin, down-curved bills and tubular tongues with brush tips. Both of these features help them feed on nectar.You are about to see a magical and beautiful bird in these pictures.And when it moves, it has colors that stand out.
The adult male is mostly shiny purple, with a dark green bar on its back and wings and a red patch on its chest. The top of the female is greenish-brown, and the bottom is yellow. This species usually breeds in wet Savannah and woodlands with Oil Palms Elaeis Guineensis. The sap comes from the cuts made in the trunk so that the liquid can be collected to make palm wine.
Most of the time, these birds eat nectar, but sometimes they also eat bugs. When they feed their young, they often do this.One or two eggs are laid in an oval nest hanging from a tree. It is a migratory bird in its range.
They give nature more bright colors and make it more lively with their songs. It’s easy to see why so many people like watching and photograph birds.
