    This image was photographed while we were visiting the Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad and Tobago. The Bananaquit is a common species seen on both islands. It lives in high mountains, rain forests, suburban and cultivated areas. It can also be seen on the edges of the mangrove swamps. His call is describes as a squeaky chatter. They fee on nectar, sugar, syrup, and overripe bananas. They are also mentioned as being constant nest builders.
