Hello everyone, since people helped me before with some 'easy' birds I dare to ask for another ID. Could anyone please help me identifying this sunbird? They are such beautiful, colourful birds but I am struggling to find their correct names.
Seen in TMNP

Sorry that the pictures aren't very clear, you have to be quick to photograph them.

Thank you so much!

Hi Hasco
This bird is an Orangebreasted Sunbird. You are so lucky I have never seen one!

There's lots of these lovely little birds in the erica garden in Kirstenbosch at the moment.
