Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds in Kabalebo. They are so tiny and fast. Here you see the Green-bellied Hummingbird, some know him as the Copper-tailed Hummingbird. Last year, 2013, I saw him/her from the first week of february till ending of march. The remaining months he was absent, until ... now. Since 10.2.14 I have seen this wonderful small creature flying nearby. He enjoys the nectar from the blooming flowers and the sugar water from the feeders. One time I saw him 'hawking' - catching insects in mid air.
The great thing about the Green-bellied Hummingbird is that I never seen him being chased away by other hummingbirds or other birds. This morning I was about to clean and refill a feeder and I noticed this tiny creature was already nearby and was flying from one branch to the other. When I returned with the feeder, he was quietly sitting on the same branch I wanted to attach the feeder. It looked like he was waiting for his 'breakfast'. During the mornings I enjoy his 'yoga' sessions. After having breakfast he sits down quietly and starts to stretch his wings in all different directions.
