photographing and learning about wildlife
Small, fast black bird with reddish orange throat. It is not afraid of humans, and is brave, (because it came into our villa, and landed on our heads). It had a finch-like beak, which was black, and it made small chirping noises.
Tropical, slightly urban/ rural
Came into our villa twice. In the guide, it said that the Orange quit was endemic to Jamaica, but the bird that i saw met ALL the descriptions of the Orange quit, and i was in Antigua. There was no other bird in the guide that looked remotely like the bird i saw, so i'm very confused by this sighting.
