Green honeycreeper

Nancy took this image on our first full day of a trip led by Brian Rapoza for the Tropical Audubon Society to Trinidad and Tobago, during which we spent several days at Asa Wright.

The Green Honeycreeper ranges from southern Mexico through Brazil, plus Trinidad. The birds are small tanagers, just over five inches in length. This is a male. Females (and juveniles) are simply grass green, but still have the yellow lower bill. The birds inhabit the tropical lowlands. Their diet consists of fruit (60%), nectar (20%), and insects (15%), so nectar plays a smaller role in their diet than for other honeycreepers.

Photographic details: Canon EOS 7D camera w/ EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens set at 400mm. Flash was used. Camera was on f/8 for 1/250 sec at ISO 640.
