Blue Bird

This pretty little Blue Bird, name unknown, is a frequent visitor to our Jabuticaba tree in our backyard in Águas da Prata. They love the Jabuticaba berries.

Later in the year when our "Restaurant Tree" in front of our house has seeds, many of them appear along with many other species. They are a delight to watch.

When I took this photo I only saw one Blue Bird. However if you look close you will see two.

It wasn't until they flew away that I saw there was two of them. The second is hard to see in this photo but he/she is to the right and down from the first one.

This appears to be a different kind of Blue Bird. His colour is more intense.

This one is more common.

They have a feast of the Jabuticaba Berries.

When the fruit is in season we see many visitors daily.

This series of photos was taken looking out my office window over the grapevine.

Sometimes they are hard to see.

They stay around for quite a long time.

They seem to be watching me.

Sometimes you see on ore two and some times more.

I think there are at least four types come to visit our trees.
