The Plain-backed Sunbirds, Anthreptes reichenowi, consists of two subpopulations - one of which is found in the coastal lowlands of Kenya and north-eastern Tanzania, and the other in Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
They mostly feed on nectar, but may also take insects, particularly when feeding chicks. They can hover like hummingbirds when retrieving nectar from flowers.
