As I mentioned in my last post, Bonaire – The Chibi Chibi Restaurant the restaurant was named after the chibi chibi bird, also known as the Bananaquit. It is one of the most popular birds on Bonaire. It got its Dutch name (“Sugar thief’) because it has adjusted so remarkably to the human environment that it has become a well-known raider of sugar pots on breakfast and coffee-tables. It also likes to build its nest in lampshades and decorative trelliswork. In a more natural environment it collects nectar from flowers, snapping up small insects as well. If they cannot reach the nectar in the normal way they will puncture the base of the flower to get at it. This robs the flower of its chance of pollination of course. Fruits are also pierced to get at the sweet juice. They breed the whole year round, building one nest after another.
Have a great day Everyone. ‘Til next time.
