Some Kenyan sunbirds

I took a million bird photos in Kenya, so I’m subdividing them into manageable groups for posting.  The sunbirds are one of my favourite old world groups…they’re functionally like hummingbirds in that they drink nectar, but they can only hover for a short time.  Still, they come in lots of beautiful colors and are fun-sized!
