About the Bananaquit:
Bananaquits (Coereba flaveola) are small birds found in a variety of habitats in Puerto Rico, including parks, suburban gardens and forested areas. They have adapted to living around humans and can become quite tame. As they are very fond of sweetness, they are easily lured to backyard garden feeders by offerings of granular sugar and sugar water where they can be observed at leisure.
Measuring between 10 and 13 cm, the bananaquit can weigh up to 19 grams. Both males and females have dark grey upperparts and black crowns and cheeks. They have a very prominent white eyestripe, with a bright yellow chest, belly and rump.

"...Art for me is a way of expressing ideas and feelings going on through my life; it helps me conquer and channel them, whether it's fear, love, stress, or any kind of passion; it helps me confront them all in canvas or paper. The Arts let me go free without almost any boundaries, and give me the opportunity to achieve the very beautiful thing that goes on in life, which is the ability to create. Not everyone has this gift, and I think I am very lucky to be able to have a chance at that and convey precious messages in it." - Susanna Lopez Castells
