Coereba flaveola
Conservation Status: Least Concern

The Bananaquit is a distinctive and unique bird with at least 41 subspecies. It can be found in almost any habitat across most of T&T. They feed on fruit and nectar, often obtaining the latter by piercing the base of flowers, a practice also known as “nectar-robbing” as it does not pollinate the flower.
