"RED BREAST OR ROBIN"
This is a sparrow-like bird that is almost black with a rufus breast. In Antigua this bird is known as the ‘Red Breast’ or ‘Robin’.
They feed on seeds, breaking the shells with the strong beak. Two or three spotted eggs are laid in an untidy globular nest with a side entrance built in a tree or large bush.
