Dave Parker's Ecolodge, Upolu Island, Samoa - October 27 2018
A Red-headed Parrotfinch foraging in a fruiting tree. Parrotfinches are mostly colourful birds, but often inconspicuous and easily overlooked as they feed quietly in trees or on the ground. Now, there was a fruiting tree right outside our door at Dave Parker’s Lodge and this endemic gem become one of the first birds I had in view after check-in! What a good start.
