This video is called Beautiful sunbirds in the “Little Karoo” (South Africa).
Remember the post on this blog about purple-banded sunbirds, building a nest in a tree in Tanzania? And about an Indian house crow destroying that nest?
Recently, Ms Anne H. Outwater, author of the article in Tanzania Daily News which was the source of the blog post, was so kind to send me these three photos she made about these events. Thank you so much!
These two photos show the female purple-banded sunbird building the nest.
This photo shows the male sunbird at the nest, after the destruction by the crow.
