Common Name: Red-Legged Honeycreeper
Scientific Name: Cyanerpes cyaneus carneipes

Size: 4¼–4¾ inches (11 - 12 cm)

Habitat: Central America. Found in humid evergreen and semi-deciduous forests.

Status: Least Concern. Global Population: 5,000,000 - 50,000,000 mature individuals.

Diet: Flower nectar and some insects.

Nesting: Females and immature birds are mainly green, with paler, faintly streaked under parts. Females build a small cup nest in a tree, and incubate the clutch of two brown-blotched white eggs for 12-13 days, with a further 14 days to fledging.

Cool Facts: Often seen in pairs or small groups in the forest canopies; especially in flowering trees. It responds readily to the call of the Ferruginous Pygmy Owl, which is often imitated by various birds.
