Artist's Description

Please view large… thank you…. Red-chested Sun-bird, an African bird in the Nectariniidae family. The Red-chested Sun bird is found in eastern sub-Saharan Africa.

We encountered beautiful Sun-birds on our African trip, they were hard to photograph as they are quick and flighty….Females and juveniles are more difficult to identify. The sun-birds have counterparts in two very distantly related groups: the Hummingbirds of the Americas and the Honey-eaters of Australia. The resemblances are due to convergent evolution due to the similar nectar-feeding lifestyle. Sun-birds have long thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding. Sun-birds, Bee-eaters and Humming birds are some of the most beautiful and colourful little birds in nature… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Kurger National Park Africa Oct. 2013
