Pygmy Sunbird, male, Hedydipna platura,

This delightful Sunbird had only just arrived back in Mole National Park for the breeding season, 10 days before Kalu had not seen them. We found several males in full song within a couple of kms of Mole Lodge. They can be found in dry savannah from SW Mauritania to n Nigeria, ne Democratic Republic of the Congo, and east to S. Sudan and N. Uganda. The image was taken on the 23rd November 2015.
