Mostly birds today....
I took these photos between 7:30 and 10:00 this morning. While not really overcast, the humidity in the air was so heavy that my camera lens and my eyeglasses kept clouding up. So while we had a great birding morning, the photography conditions weren't good.
Finally! The bird we've been wanting to see since we got here in December! We've been hearing it, and today finally located it.
Very blurry, but I felt lucky to get a shot of it at all... the foliage was so dense and it was way up in the top of a distant tree.
Actually... not 1 but 2 Elegant Trogons....
The lower left is identifiable; the upper right... let's just say we know what it is.
A pair of Rufous-bellied Chachalaca
No red visible on the bird's head, but this is the most likely ID
Black-bellied Whistling Ducks
First time we've seen them in the lagoon this year.
Looks like he's having a bad-hair day... but that's his everyday look.
And.... my favorite photo of the day...
This Great-blue Heron had nabbed himself a big snake in the lagoon. We watched him for what seemed like 10 minutes before he finally ate it... all in one big swallow! I have no idea what kind of snakes are in the lagoon.... but they must be a tasty breakfast to a heron.
And... lastly... the Chachalacas again....
That's All For Today!
