WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY

I am continuing some of my Malawian photographs and these were taken again in David’s garden.  This Variable Sunbird was very active looking for food in this bush and was extremely difficult to photograph.  He is moulting and has not receiced all of his beautiful new plumage.  
I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY. 










Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

  1. You got great pictures for such an active bird! If he is this pretty when he is molting, I can't imagine how much more beautiful when he is not. He looks a tiny bit like a humming bird, except that his beak is curved.

  4. I love that first shot. He's a beautiful bird, even in the moulting stage.

  5. I guess he was hiding since he wasn't in full array yet.

  6. I can see why this bird is shy about being photographed since it has not fully molted.

  9. Variable is certainly an appropriate part of this beautiful bird's name. I have never heard of a sunbird. I would love to see one. Great photos, especially since you say it was hard to catch.
