NOTES: (Bkground Sounds: Saxicola torquata (distant display/songs). Behav. Context: Nectar defense (food source).) The "mist" i.e. fog or cloud had come down thickly, visibility was down to 4-5 meters in front of us--but olivacea continues feeding and interacting with Z. borbonicus. There still was a juv. olivacea being fed by the adults but mroe olivacea were feeding than just the two parents, always at a Hypericum.
