A Perfect Day for Bananaquit…


Every afternoon around 4:00 at Reef Madness, the bananaquits started gathering in the trees next to the pool where we were relaxing.  That was Bob’s cue to go in the house and fill the little bowl in their feeder with sugar.  Once the bowl was full, it was no problem snapping away at them.  They were totally immersed in the sugar.  Cute little birdies, aren’t they?


They seemed like cheery little dudes, but I think they kind of look like angry birds.

The sugar was flung all around.

Just sugar, no water? They are so pretty and great captures of the little sugar flingers

No water and they go through a quarter cup of sugar in no time flat. Of course, there are probably 20 or 25 of them.
