'african flier' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'daily porridge needed' is the wordplay.
'daily' becomes 'sun' (daily UK newspaper).
'porridge' becomes 'bird' (I've seen this before).
'needed' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'sun'+'bird'='SUNBIRD'

'for' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for sunbird that I've seen is "Flighty African".)
