Cape Sugarbird

First up - a link to the much better trip report prepared by our guide Alistair Kilpin - thanks to Birding Africa for the link - TRIP REPORT


In complete contrast to the vocal but reclusive victorin's warbler we were treated to point blank views of cape sugarbird - a species I had only briefly seen in the past (from a moving car in 2010!).

This bird was fearless and fed boldly a few feet from where we stood... It was great to finally get to photograph a bird without heat haze and at a reasonable distance for the 100-400mm!!!

This sugarbird was further along the coast at Rooi Els - cracking!
