Cambacica or Bananaquit

Coereba flaveola

Description:

The bananaquit is a small bird, although there is some degree of size variation across the various subspecies. Length can range from 4 to 5 in (10 to 13 cm).[11][12] Weight ranges from 5.5 to 19 g (0.19 to 0.67 oz).[13][14] Most subspecies of the bananaquit have dark grey (almost black) upperparts, black crown and sides of the head, a prominent white eyestripe, grey throat, white vent, and yellow chest, belly and rump. The sexes are alike, but juveniles are duller and often have a partially yellow eyebrow and throat. (Wikipedia)

Habitat:

Was often seen flitting between the bushes in the garden and feeding from the nectar of the cactus flowers, often in competition with the local hummingbirds
