To have an all-access pass to the party when the buds freshly open and the tiniest flying insects, wasps and bees tango together with small hummingbirds, honeycreepers, tanagers, yellow orioles and crested oropendolas is truly a sight to behold. The Bois Flot tree is indeed the Tree of Life!
The Bois Flot tree is indigenous to Trinidad & Tobago and its wood is known to be the lightest worldwide. Many bird species like this stunning green honeycreeper nourish themselves with nectar and insects from the flowers which bear from December to March.
I watched for days as these male and female woodpeckers took turns feeding their young.
One stayed guard while the other fetched grubs. As the chicks got bigger, so did the food.
Woodepeckers nest in dead trees, and many birds will share the nests and return for years to come.
