NOTES: (Behav. Context: Defending nectar source & young; feeding fledged young.) I climbed up the slope and bush to verify that the "young" was that of olivacea. Field annotations all included. The juv. remained in a Hypericum bush/tree while the adults came in and out very swiftly to feed it. The "begging" very high and fast can be heard. The adults were very aggressive and very active while caring for the young.
