Description of obverse and reverse
A brief annotation
The Sunbirds, also called Honey Suckers, are the counterpart of the Hummingbirds who are only found in America. The biggest difference is that the Hummingbird sucks the nectar from the blossoms while hovering over them. Although the Sunbirds also master this flight manoeuvre of a stagnant flight they prefer drinking in a sitting position. With their long thin down-curved bills they are able to reach the nectar inside the blossoms with no big effort. Insects and spiders are also part of their diet. They cover the bird’s protein requirement
