Barbados birds (1) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
My brother (who has a casual interest in birds) is currently holidaying in Barbados and is WhatsApping me photos of various birds - apologies in advance for the variable quality.

I've never been to the Caribbean and am therefore not especially familiar with its avifauna, but have reasonably confidently identified three of them from the internet as Grey Kingbird, Bananaquit and Green Heron - please confirm if I'm right.

I can't identify the hummingbird (I think?):

Thanks Larry. I found photos of a few hummer species found in Barbados that were black / dark with long decurved bills, but that was the species that I thought most likely.

Surely Bananaquit is due a review with the potential for an array of splits, they can look so different depending where you are.
