    Blackburnian Warbler ? Yucatan, Mexico

    Hello, is this a Blackburnian Warbler ? If so, is this a first-year bird or a female ? Yucatan, 2018/08/29

    Unknown bird - Chunchucmil (Merida) Mexico

    Another terrible long-distance shot against a cloudy sky... I have very little idea of what this could be... It is a bit Kingbird-like but there are no matches in that family. What's more, it is probably smaller in size. No match either in the Vireo family. Any suggestions ? Chunchucmil...

    Hummingbird ID, Los Dinamos, Mexico City, Mexico - 22 November 2020

    Any help identifying this little beauty is very much appreciated. Seen, singing away with a real melodious song (sadly not captured) while walking in the Dinamos, wooded valley to the South of Mexico City on 22 November 2020. Sadly I only have frontal shots so keeping my fingers crossed it’s...

    Raptor ID - Tequesquitengo, Morelos, Mexico - 27/2/21

    This raptor landed in a tree having just swiped it‘s prey out of the air (possibly a swallow). It was a long way off so photo clarity is not great. Possibly a juvenile, but really not sure what it is. Seen just near lake Tequesquitengo in Morelos, Mexico, on Saturday 27 February 2021. I have...

    Hummingbird ID - Tequesquitengo, Mexico 27/2/21

    Saw these hummingbirds in Tequesquitengo, just South of Mexico City, Mexico. 1 & 2 were taken at the same time and 3 & 4 were taken at the same time, but I believe it could be the same bird or same species. The last 3 are the same birds, there were about 5/6 of these small hummingbird roaming...

    Tiny as a butterfly

    This tiny little bird was flitting from one flower to another at quite a height. Was photographing to get an ID, but I was lucky to get a decent shot. So many more hummingbirds to see. In case my ID is wrong, please let me know.

    Keel-billed Toucan

    The problem with living in Scotland - one forgets how to take photographs in places with sunshine! The image was so over exposed that I ignored it until now. Thanks to some clever software (DPP), its back to life.

    I saw many of these beautiful birds in Mexico and all over Central and South America. I love hearing their distinctive song throughout the jungle.

    Keel billed toucan

    This is the second toucan I've ever seen in the wild. I spotted him early in the morning on the last day of my trip to Playa Del Carmen. He was such a gift to see! I saw my first toucan in the jungles of Colombia. I love toucans but they are very elusive and hard to spot. I hope to see more...

    Yellow-backed oriole

    I took this photo in Playa Del Carmen Mexico on a Vacation in the spring time a few years ago. What a handsome bird! I was so happy to see him and get a shot of him in a tree. It's the first oriole I had ever seen in the wild.

    I think this is a black headed trogon. I saw it in Playa Del Carmen Mexico when on Vacation a few years ago. It is so elegantly beautiful.
