Photographed in Barranquilla. This bird is very common in cities and towns. However, you will see very few birds in Colombian cities. I use to think there were not enough micro nature habitats to sustain them. For example, Barranquilla has very few parks and most are rundown. But now I believe it is the infestation of rats in the cities that has killed-off nesting birds. To see the large variety of colorful birds Colombia has you have to look outside the city.
