Cambacica or Bananaquit

Coereba flaveola


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)


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
