Observations of a juvenile Greater Doublecollared Sunbird Cinnyris afer
On Sunday 3 October 2010 I observed a single chick leaving one of the nests for the first time (Fig. 1). It flew about 5 m from the nest into a Bottle Brush tree Callistemon subulatus where it perched. This was the only chick to hatch and leave the nest. According to Smith (2005) a clutch normally has two eggs.
