    Cinnamon Hummingbirds and Yucatan Flycatchers in Quintana Roo

    Does anyone have any suggestions where to look for this species in areas around Felipe Carillo Puerto, Tulum, Coba or Muyil. I searched last time but never came across any and wonder if they are likely more local than I expected. I plan to target these this year :) Thanks, Julian

    Blakiston's at Yoroushi

    We are in Hokkaido in late Feb 2018. The Washi-No-Ya do site is booked up during our visit. We are booked at Yoroushi Springs a little further out than Rauso. Pricewise it is comparable, but the set up may not be as easy? I think we can pay to visit Washi, but due to the cold and unpredictable...

    This spot, north Tulum is semmingly good for birds, and has produced Ornate Hawk Egale. There is a road leading west opposite the PArque on the map, to the Dos Ojos Cenote. Can anyone expound on this spot and how/where to bird? Thanks, Julian

    Help with aternative Access to Vigia Chico Road?

    Can anyone add information whether or not the Sian Ka'an road that heads south from the 307 is accessible? See map. I plan to head from Tulum, and the option of taking this road seems more logical than driving all the way to F. Carrillo then back NE. It looks as though it should cut through...

    Advice needed for Yucatan, Mexico trip

    Initial plans to hit Belize changed to Mexico, so am researching sites. I will be based in Cozumel (3 nights) and then in Tulum (5 nights) from 18-27th Nov.

    7D MK 11 Image Quality, RAW vs JPEG

    In case anyone was having issues with IQ from their 7D MK 11 files, here's one area that was giving me some sleepless nights. Since I don't have an easy way to open RAW files due to outdated software/hardware, I had been shooting large jpegs. Utilizing my typical workflow, I was frustrated in...

    Crowd Twitch Pix needed

    I am doing a talk, or hopefully doing one and wondered if any old gits like myself have photos of the crowd at Landguard that thought they were watching a Paddyfield Warbler and shots of the wack-job Chiffchaff that they were actually watching. I'd be happy to give credit to the photographer if...
