The Sunbirds returned today. Young ones, adults. I am quite convinced that they are intent on helping him to fly out of the cage. On the way, they also discovered his feeder with the honey solution and tasted it. well, they seem to like it. Got two more feeders…

One of the youngsters, a young male in the midst of changing his colors, tried to pull him out by grasping his wing feather… I moved the wire in his cage to a distant enough place, so he’s less accessible now. Also, I put a branch right through his cage. He seems to like it.

… and more “talk”

Following my vet’s advice I tried to offer the little bird some dried blood-worms. They are actually fish-food, but maybe the little bird will be tempted to try it. I put in a couple of places, one of which the free birds can also access.

The sunbirds took some of the worms, ate some and flew away with some, possibly to give to their own young. They seem to be well intent in helping my little bird, so thy come to ‘chat’ with him, or rather at him. So far’ he has not broduced any sounds other than single twits.

Who knows, maybe they’ll teach him to eat worms too…
