Artist's Description

During our stay in Cape Town we visited Table Mountain and on the slopes of the mountain where the proteas were growing we saw these Sugar birds feeding on the Proteas.. it was such a love sight …

The sugarbirds make up a small family, Promeropidae, of passerine birds which are restricted to southern Africa. The two species of sugarbird make up one of only two bird families restricted entirely to southern Africa, the other being the rock-jumpers Chaetopidae. In general appearance as well as habits they resemble large long-tailed sunbirds, but are possibly more closely related to the Australian honeyeaters. They have brownish plumage, the long downcurved bill typical of passerine nectar feeders, and long tail feathers.
