Swartsuikerbekkie/Amethyst Sunbird

Die Swartsuikerbekkie (Chalcomitra amethystina) is ‘n algemene standvoël, nomade en plaaslike trekvoël in boomveld, woudrand en tuine. Sommige voëls trek in die winter weg uit die dorre gebiede. Die voël is 15 cm groot en weeg 11 – 19 gram. In Engels staan die voël bekend as die Amethyst Sunbird.

The amethyst sunbird, also called the black sunbird (Chalcomitra amethystina), is a species of passerine bird in the Nectariniidae family. It is native to the Afrotropics, mostly south of the equator.[2] They are commonly found in well-watered habitats, and undertake seasonal movements to visit flowering woodlands. The demise of some woodlands have impacted their numbers locally, but their range has also expanded along with the spread of wooded gardens.
