Yellow-Rumped Cacique

These birds are named for the bright, yellow patch of feathers over their rump. They are very social and known to flock with other yellow-rumped caciques and birds of other species with similar diets. The adults mostly eat insects but will supplement their diet with fruit, nuts, and seeds.
