What a lovely little bird :) It is a disgrace to the human race that our so called 'progress' is depriving species such as this of the habitat. surely there is a better way ?

It is a pretty bird, too bad it may not survive because of losing habitat. I would think it would be able to flourish but if they are spraying heavily to kill bugs that would be a problem for it.

This is a species that I was not aware of, but certainly a very attractive bird.
