Product Description

Identification: The splendid sunbird (Cinnyris coccinigastrus) is a sunbird. The sunbirds are a group of very small Old Worldpasserine birds which feed largely on nectar, although they will also take insects, especially when feeding young. Their flight is fast and direct on short wings. Most species can take nectar by hovering like a hummingbird, but usually perch to feed most of the time. Splendid sunbirds are 15 cm long, and have medium-long thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding. The adult male is mainly glossy purple, with a dark green back and wing bar, and a crimson breast patch. The female is greenish-brown above and yellowish below.

Geography: West & Central Tropical Africa

Diet: Roudybush, Inc. Nectar 3 and Nectar 9 mixed half and half, fruit flies, soft fruits (kiwi, oranges, soft pears, etc.)
