Copeicillo violáceo [Purple Honeycreeper] (Cyanerpes caeruleus caeruleus) (♂)

Lugar: Finca La Pomarrosa, Barlovento, centro norte de Venezuela.

 

Los copeicillos vioáceos regresaron puntualmente a disfrutar de las últimas naranjas de la cosecha de este año. Estarán por aquí tal vez hasta febrero y luego desaparecerán tan misteriosamente como llegaron. Me parece que vienen aquí a anidar aprovechando la abundancia de alimento, pero no tengo idea sobre dónde van el resto del año.

Purple Honeycreepers have come back punctually to enjoy the last oranges of this year's harvest. They will stay around perhaps until February, and suddenly they will disappear mysteriously, the same way as they have arrived. It seems to me that they come here for nesting, profiting by the food abundance, but I have no idea about where are they spending the rest of the year.
