Focus on a typical bird of St. Martin : "Sucrier à ventre jaune"

sucrier saint martinThis remarkable little sparrow of about 10cm, whose scientific name is Coereba flaveola, is one of the most common birds in the Caribbean.
Its nest, ball-shaped, is placed in the trees, just meters from the ground.

Present on the whole island of Saint Martin, the Sucrier is well named: they are real small "looters" of sweet substance. They are fond of nectar of flowers, fruit juices, insects and love sugar..

Put some sugar on a plate, a first “sucrier”will arrive and you will hear him chirping to call his mates and after a few minutes, ten or twenty “sucrier” will feast
