O'la

Arrived yesterday evening in heavy rain, but all clear this morning so managed a quick hour out before breakfast as this is a "family holiday" :-)

First birds seen were Grackles and Tropical Mockingbirds and after freshening up and sifting through the regular calls and songs i did find a few warblers, Yellow, Magnolia, Yellow-throated and a cracking male Hooded.

Wandered onto the Golf course and then got thrown off, got to come up with a cunning plan for this as it is heaving with birds here !!

Star bird of my brief search goes to this cracking Turquoise-Browed Motmot that appeared out of nowhere as i was trying to pish the Hooded out of cover.







also known as clockbird with its pendulum like plumes






This Rose-Throated Becard was new for me.




This Summer Tanager was in the same tree.
