[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This male Green Honeycreeper (Chlorophanes spiza), found the stash of bananas and was agressivly defending it from other birds. Green honeycreepers tend to bully other species of birds out of the feeders, and in my own observation within the species its the female who tends to bully the male away.

In this case after eating his share, this guy decided he ate too much and left unable to enjoy the vast majority of his hard earned loot.

Hello Simon,
Not a 'Banana Quit' but a beautiful Green Honeycreeper that seems to love banans too!
A beautiful bird in wonderful colours. You show the red eye too!
TFS and regards, Ulla
