Is awareness always good?
Beauty always contrast?
Life shedding past?
Macro micro understood?
Burblequest is a compulsive collection of images cobbled by free association of theme, synonym and antonym. It is in the archive threads become tapestry.
If you played the 'male or female?' guess game with my previous picture of the same species, well this is the opposite gender!
There is a clear sexual dimorphism: The male has a black head and throat. The plumage of its body is glossy bluish-green, with tertials, wing coverts and edgings on wings and tail somewhat darker, its iris brick-red, and the legs greyish. The female lacks the black head. Its upper parts are olive green, the lower parts yellowish green, and the iris is reddish-brown.
It frequents the canopy of dense forest but often descends low along forest edges, in clearings with scattered trees and shrubs, or in gardens. They usually live in pairs that often join birds of other species such as tanagers or warblers. Its food consists of fruit, seed, nectar and insects.
