The regular crowd are back in full force this summer, with no less than 35 birds loafing about in our indigenous garden.

Sugarbirds on Avian Leisure's garden feeder

The Saccharine Sweetness of Sugarbirds

Arriving in October and departing by end April they provide delightful entertainment as they jostle amicably for positions around our nectar feeder, often in the company of Speckled Mousebird, and Malachite, Southern Double-collared and Orange-breasted Sunbirds. A real festive season treat!
