Sunbird D12 Post-hatching

A newly hatched sunbird. This little chick was born in a nest in our front garden a few years ago, but sadly did not survive more than a few hours after it took its first flight. Its stronger sibling had flown off a few days back. This little fella probably had some birth defect and was unable to fully find his wings.
