Had this little visitor this morning :-) A immature Double collared Sunbird ^Q^

He came right into the house , into the back-door , through the kitchen , down the passage and then into the lounge , where he fluttered around :O^

Sitting on the ceiling-fan

Then to the window , various poses before I could open up and let him out .
