Green figbird

female green figbird

Female green figbird, Sphecotheres vieilloti, IMG 2741 - Green figbirds, as their name implies, have a penchant for scoffing native and cultivated figs, but that’s not the only fruit on which they regularly dine. A wide range of wild fruits and berries are on their varied menu, and they’ll satisfy their appetites for the sweet treats of life with mulberries, pawpaws, and bananas, with the damage they cause to crops of bananas having earned the figbird the alternative colloquial name of ‘banana bird’.
