The other favourite Fruit of this falcon is known as five-finger on St Lucia. Alternative names include Starfruit and Carambola. The falcon hovers near the yellow Carambola and picks the fruit of the tree with its beak. It flies to the ground and eats the whole fruit, which has a tart taste and is a good source of vitamin C.
Due the falcon’s diminutive stature, the bird can’t tackle either pineapples, soursops, or breadfruit on trees, although it will eat these fruit if they are lying around on the ground.
