The day I finished this set of earrings, I saw three white-bellied sunbirds, and I’m 90% certain I saw a black sunbird too (hard to tell, it flew past overhead and I was squinting against the sun). Today, I was wearing these earrings, and my son asked me to wait for him outside. I sat down, and heard a chirping, and looked across into the yellow weeds, and there was a pair of white-bellied sunbirds, sampling the early flowers and singing. I’ve been contemplating planting more strelitzias to attract them and it’s good to see that they are already present in my garden.
