A Bird in the Hand

Bananaquits are tiny, nectar eating birds of the Caribean.  Black and white upper bodies with bright yellow bellies, these birds are pretty and popular entertainers around docks.  Very easily tamed, they will eat from your hand, sit on your shoulder, or fly into your boat for a visit.

Sometimes they need a hand to find there way out again.
