from Trinidad, 1

Favorite companion and I are in Trinidad (poor us) with snow a distant memory. We are at the Asa Wright Nature Center - wonderful experience is so many ways. Details when we return. For now, just a few first samples ...

... beginning with the iconic bird of Trinidad & Tobago, the Scarlet Ibis ...


... Southern Lapwing ...


... Green Honeycreeper (male) ...



... Bearded Bellbird (one of the oddest birds I have seen - with one of the most persistent territorial call) ...


... and one of many hummingbird species, some of which I have been able to photograph, White-necked Jacobin ...


Good birding!! (a bit of an understatement).

Great pictures Chris. The Bearded Bellbird is a strange looking bird. Must be related to a pirate somewhere.
