Notes:

I saw this bird on a hike I took recently, resting on a young plant whose name I can't remember(The plant that is not the bird).It was eating Phoulourie (Which is a popular delicacy here in Trinidad). I have no idea where it got the phoulourie but it seemed to be enjoying it.It was very friendly and actually allowed us to pet it before it took of.
