Puerto Rico birds (November 20-24, 2022) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

I took these pictures during my short Thanksgiving trip to Puerto Rico. Most were taken near San Juan, except for 4 which was taken near Fajardo.

I have some ideas, but any confirmation would be appreciated:

1. Surely Greater Antillean Grackle? (would be new)
2. Surely Zenaida Dove? (would be new)
3. Surely Gray Kingbird?
4. Surely Pearly-eyed Thrasher? (would be new)
5. Not sure sure, an immature Puerto Rican Spindalis? (would be new)

Thanks in advance,

Agree on the first four.
It is certainly possible you are correct with the fifth, I am leaning that way, but I do not really have experience with a juvenile of that species.
