Sanhaços are very usual native birds in my region, they eat fruits and are present in any backyard. During the winter it is difficult to find fruits and these guys found a green papaya and ate it even before the fruit become nice to be ate.
Another image from my window.
Os sanhaços são aves bem comuns em minha região, frequentam todos os quintais e andam sempre à caça de frutas. Aqui vemos dois deles comendo um mamão verde num dia de inverno, ainda que a fruta não estivesse pronta para ser comida.

Hi Jorge. You sure have some very colourful guests to your garden.Lovely combination of colours with the golden yellow of the papaya and the blue of the birds and the additional green. Well taken and sharp too- something not that easy when birds are being photographed, Regards. Klaudio.

Splendid shot of this bird duo gorging on ripe papaya.
Great timing and opportunism. The grey birds present good contrast with the orange interiors of the papaya. Very sharp and clear closeup shot. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely blue birds in pic. with great contrast to green and yellow, Jorge.
Black grains very notable on the yellow leaf.
Native of your region, but very similar in appearence to our sparrows.

Muy bonita imagen de estos pajarillos, que tienen un bonito color en sus plumajes, el amarillo de la fruta es un bonito contraste de color.
Gran momento, muy bien visto y mejor realizado.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

When did you take this photo? You must be going into summer now. At any rate, the colors are very nice, nice close-up work.

Very nice picture of these birds, which have a nice color in their plumage, yellow fruit is a nice color contrast.
Have a nice Sunday
