Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, distinctive sunbird, red and yellow below with iridescent blue on the forehead, throat, and breast. The male and female are similar, though the female is duller. Found very locally in miombo broadleaf woodland. Usually in pairs. One vocalization is a series of clear whistled notes, but also gives a warbling song and chattering notes.
