Bananaquit ( suikerdiefje)

Coereba flaveola (bananaquit) is common mainly in South America and the tiny bird occupies most of the Caribbean Islands. The bird, in areas where it is most common, may become very tame around human settlements. Natives of South America find, from time to time, the bananaquit on their kitchen table looking for sugar.

The name on Curacao is suikerdiefje (sugar thief).
