I have only seen 2, one in March at WCNP with MN, C o'Dee & Dreamer.

Recently all the Aloes have been flowering in the Eastern Cape especially in Addo Elephant and Mountain Zebra National Parks where the Sunbirds have been having a field day especially in the main camps where the males snatch a quick feed and then chase each other away from this food source for the rest of the day.

This is a pic I took of a Male Greater Double Collared Sunbird recently in Main Camp Addo
