The tiny sunbird or Kolibri in Creole, is one of the few endemic species that has thrived since humans arrived in the Seychelles.
Swiftlets or Zirondel in Creole are fast and accurate fliers and spend most of their life in the air. They feed by catching small flying insects in their mouth as they fly.
The scops owl or Syer is nocturnal which means it is active at night. It is mainly found in highland forests of Mahe, so it is rarely seen.
Unlike many endemic birds, Seychelles bulbul or the Merl in Creole, are not in any immediate danger of becoming extinct.
The Seychelles Kestrelor Katiti in Creole is the only native day-flying bird of prey in the central Seychelles and one of the only two in Seychelles (the other is Madagascar Kestrel found on Aldabra).
