Paragliding Porterville - Male Malachite Sunbird during breeding season.

Malachite Sunbirds are found in hilly fynbos including protea stands which makes Porterville an ideal habitat for them.

The species is monogamous and the adult male is a beautiful metallic green when breeding and also has an elaborate display flight. He is hardly present during this time, only occasionally bringing food to the female or chick.

The female has brown upper parts with some indistinct streaking on the breast

Sunbirds have long thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues for feeding mainly on nectar.
