Watch Video. With a flight range of up to km, our Drone is able to automatically follow its GPS flight path and take HD pictures of each waterpoint. After finishing its mission, the SB4 will fly back and land autonomously. Email Address. The family ranges in size from the 5-gram black-bellied sunbird to the spectacled spiderhunter , at about 45 grams.
Like the hummingbirds, sunbirds are strongly sexually dimorphic , with the males usually brilliantly plumaged in iridescent colours. Sunbirds have long thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding. They are typically larger than the other sunbirds, with drab brown plumage that is the same for both sexes, and long, down-curved beaks.
In metabolic behaviour similar to that of Andes hummingbirds,  species of sunbirds that live at high altitudes or latitudes will enter torpor while roosting at night, lowering their body temperature and entering a state of low activity and responsiveness. The moulting regimes of sunbirds are complex, being different in different species.
Many species have no eclipse plumage, but do have juvenile plumage. Some species do show duller plumage in the off-season. In some instances different populations of the same species can display variation in different molting regimes. In Africa they are found mostly in sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar but are also distributed in Egypt. In Asia the group occurs along the coasts of the Red Sea as far north as Israel , and along the Mediterranean as far north as Beirut , with a gap in their distribution across inland Syria and Iraq, and resuming in Iran , from where the group occurs continuously as far as southern China and Indonesia.
They are generally not found on oceanic islands, with the exception of the Seychelles. The greatest variety of species is found in Africa, where the group probably arose. Most species are sedentary or short-distance seasonal migrants. Sunbirds occur over the entire family's range, whereas the spiderhunters are restricted to Asia. The sunbirds and spiderhunters occupy a wide range of habitats, with a majority of species being found in primary rainforest, but other habitats used by the family including disturbed secondary forest, open woodland, open scrub and savannah, coastal scrub and alpine forest.
Some species have readily adapted to human modified landscapes such as plantations, gardens and agricultural land. Eric Arn. Gaute Granli. Previous page. Audio CD. No Sun No Shadow. Freedom Flight.

How are ratings calculated? Galaxy - Visions. Sunbirds were a rather surprising conglomeration of younger and older players. I had never heard this one before although I had seen it, not really knowing who the players were. This has everything you want to hear in a record like this, as far as I am concerned and the informative GOD booklet is the icing on the already delicious cake.
Don't let its obscurity stop you from buying this if you like that sound.
