BLUE DACNIS (Dacnis cayana) or Turquoise Honeycreepers are small Tanagers. They occur naturally in Central America - Nicaragua to Panama, on Trinidad - as well as in South America south to Bolivia and northern Argentina. They inhabit forests and other woodlands. mostly feed on insects gleaned from foliage, flowers or bromeliads. They also eat fruits, which they usually swallow whole. They rarely consume nectar.
