Animals of North America
The bananaquit is a tropical bird easily found in forests and gardens where nectar-producing flowers and fruit are abundant. Their year-round range includes most of the Caribbean islands though they are rare in Cuba, and they are also found in Central America and South America as far south as northern Argentina. In the United States, these birds are rare visitors or vagrants to southern Florida.
The bananaquit is an acrobatic forager and will creep sideways or cling upside down to flowers and fruits to get to the sweetest foods. They are typically solitary or may be found in pairs during the breeding season.
