Keep your eyes open for sunbirds,

when walking on Table Mountain

One of the best sights you can see when walking on Table Mountain is a sunbird. These tiny birds flit from bush to bush often seen as nothing more than a brief flash of colour caught in the corner of your eye. They have a sharp call that is easily recognised so on hearing it keep you eyes open and move slowly and quietly. Seldom still for long, you may be rewarded with a sighting.

As with many birds, the females are rather less brightly coloured, but still move with intense swift movements that cannot help but impress.
