    26. Great Blue Heron While I was planting a cutting from my red plumeria tree (frangipani) into my neighbor's garden, the GBH flew over. Have my first Monarch chrysalis of the year. I know there is another, but haven't found it yet. There was another caterpillar on the Milkweed. I did some...

    Hi Bryan. Hope you are well. Sorry you missed the Cinnamon, I see it most days when I bird. It seems to be the most common hummer here most of the time, but this visit I saw the Broad-billed more often than the Cinnamon.

    Thanks, Lisa. Still trying to get used to my new Sony RX10. I had about 90% terrible shots, so it was nice to get a decent one every once in a while.

    Thanks, Richard. Don't know how I got on the 2021; didn't notice. I think I left what few grey cells I have left at home when I came to Mexico. I will probably leave my soul here when I leave.

    Garden / Yard List 2021

    Just went out to collect the clothes pins/pegs from the lifelines. As I went out the hatch, I saw a hummingbird in the shrubs that line the marina. Grabbed the bins. Broad-billed Hummingbird. I have gone out two nights to see if I could catch the unidentified night heron I saw some nights ago...

    When I was a kid, we lived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and our back yard was ringed with lilacs and little cherry things. The lilacs were so beautiful and smelled wonderful. I missed them when we transferred to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Talk about environmental shock!:LOL:

    I had a total Barra List posted, but realized it was missing a few birds, so I deleted it. I will update it and post after I get home.

    We leave tomorrow. We will spend most of today getting Peregrine ready for the hurricane season. If I happen to get a new bird for the list, I will add it. Hopefully we'll be back sometime in July. April 16-30 Barra de Navidad List: Brown Pelican Magnificent Frigatebird Neotropic Cormorant...

    Crap birder of the year here. It's tough to admit that my Townsend's Shearwater morphed into a Grey-breasted Martin (or something Martinish or Swallowish), but that's what happened. When I got to the site, I saw some Snowy Egrets on the lower levels of the rocky cliffs. I could see them clearly...

    Having my coffee and looking at the blobs on the screen. I found a few on the side of the hill--they look too upright for Shearwaters. When the Galapagos Shearwaters landed on Peregrine, they looked 'boneless' almost. Also, where did they all go? At the time, I thought maybe they were out...

    Here's another photo of what may be one of the birds in flight. I think there are four birds in the photo. It's 12:45 a.m. here, going to get some sleep.

    Four more birds to add to the April 16-30 list: Crested Caracara Lesser Goldfinch Common Moorhen Northern Jacana I also saw a Crocodile, Coati Mundi and some other good stuff--but the best was a possible group of Shearwaters on a rocky out-cropping on the Pacific Ocean side of the peninsula. I...

Possibly not migrated yet. Rose-throated Becard Scrub Euphonia Greyish Saltator We leave next Saturday. Hope to add a...
