As its name suggests, the bananaquit is found near bananas. Its prime habitat requirement is an abundance of flowers, its primary food.The bananaquit does not feed on the fruit of the banana tree, but instead uses its sharp bill to reach the sweet nectar of the blossoms. Some bananaquit nests examined in Tobago were composed of 400–650 individual pieces of plant materials. The bananaquit keeps intruders at bay with rapid wing vibrations. If that doesn’t work, it pecks at its opponent; the fighting birds often flutter down to the ground where they continue their struggle. (The Encyclopledia of Birds)

Impresionante trabajo Mario, nitidez increíble en el ave y un DOF que resalta el sujeto.
