Little Spiderhunter

Lately they are  quite easy to spot, must be a lot of them around. I’m still wondering why they are called spiderhunters. Do they actually hunt and feed on spiders coz I’ve yet to see one with a spider between the bill.

  2. Great photos as always! I read a site about how they got their name from collecting spider webs for nests. Here it is if you want a look.
