Grey Sunbird

Cyanomitra veroxii

Found along the east coast of South Africa in coastal and riverine forests, this fairly non-descript sunbird can often be located near Strelitzia trees, on which it feeds.

We first set eyes on this species in September 2010 at Ndumo Game Reserve, bordering Mozambique. The best spot that I have been to for this species is Umngazi River Bungalows in the old Transkei.
