PURPLE HONEYCREEPERS AT FEEDERS, ASA WRIGHT NATURE CENTRE, ARIMA, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO


   The first two photos show the male Purple Honeycreeper.   In the next two photos the male Purple Honeycreeper is on the left and the female on the right.  Also, in the second photo you can see a Bananaquit at the back of the feeder. 
   We can ID the male Purple Honeycreeper by its violet blue color; black strongly downcurved bill; black lores, throat, wings and tail and bright yellow legs.
   We can ID the female Purple Honeycreeper by its green streaked underparts, green legs, pale chestnut lores and throat and blue moustachial streak.
   The Purple Honeycreeper is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 525.
