Omnivorous, eating fruit, berries, seeds, and invertebrates. Nest in tree holes; female lays 2-4 eggs, incubates them alone in 12-14 days. Male and female feed chicks until fledging.

This photo showed up in my inbox from a friend (thanks, Tad) who sends out all sorts of informative emails and photos, etc. This just took my breath away and I needed to share it. Wow… Earth Mother can certainly dress up some of her creatures in some amazing beauty.

blessings, blessings,
