Milena tells us that "I saw a behaviour unfamiliar to me which was completely unexpected. The diademed tanager was at the loquat tree. I thought it would eat the fruits but I saw it sally to snatch an insect. After that, I took these two photos where it kept eating insects instead of fruits.

I mentioned this to an observer who proposed that since this is breeding time feeding needs require a high-protein diet and they turn to insects since they are highly nutritional". 
Following the thread of reasoning this individual should be a female (the diademed tanager shows no dichromatism) which is the one that invests energy to produce eggs.

As we returned along the Lizard Path, Pablo heard the diademed tanager. It stayed in the area singing and eating. As we enjoyed its song a Swainson's flycatcher appeared. It only emitted a vocalization and left.
