Default Bananas Pollinators

Here there are some birds that can be Bananas Pollinators.........

first a brief text about Pollination :

from Wikipédia

"The word pollinator is often used when pollenizer is more precise. A pollinator is the biotic agent that moves the pollen, such as bees, moths, bats, and birds."

"The verb form to pollenize is to be the source of pollen, or to be the sire of the next plant generation."

Pollinator or Pollenizer – What’s in a word?

•Pollinate: The act of moving pollen from one flower to another
•Pollinator: The biotic agent that moves pollen from one flower to another; bee, wasp, fly, bat, bird, moth, beetle or ant
•Pollinize: To provide pollen, to pollinate
•Pollinizer: A plant that provides fertile pollen
•Self-fertile: A plant that is capable of producing viable fruit using its own pollen (also "self-fruitful")
•Self-pollinate: A plant that is capable of pollinating its own flowers

So.....let´s see the birds capable to do this task...........true gems of the Nature......
