This female red-legged honeycreeper is part of a group that spends most of the day eating papaya we put out near our back porch in Costa Rica. They are feisty little birds who often chase larger birds away. Once they peck through the outer skin, they stick their entire heads through the hole to get at the juicy meat inside.
