The seasonality of the Amethyst Sunbird in Groenkloof, Pretoria
All of the available information on the seasonal movements of the Amethyst Sunbird Chalcomitra amethystina in South Africa can be summed up by saying: "We think there are some seasonal movements but we know nothing about them". For example (1997) wrote of this species: "As with other sunbirds, it may migratory to nomadic within its range," and a decade later he summarized the movements and migration of the species as "Sedentary, nomadic and locally migratory" (Tree 2007).
