Samoan word of the Day: November 26: Segasegamau'u - Cardinal Honeyeater

Nectar is a very important food for many Samoan animals. The beautiful red and black Cardinal Honeyeater (segasegamau'u) is the most specialized nectar-eater. Its long bill and tongue enable it to reach deep into flowers, and its small size allows it to perch on even the tiniest twigs to reach the blossoms.
