Venezuelan Troupial

Point of interest on troupials: They don't build nests of their own. They're nest pirates, either making use of abandoned nests of other birds or forcibly driving the original residents out. This fellow was particularly elusive and shy, so I was lucky to get the few frames I did (this is one of the better ones, believe it or not).
