For some reason I sat down on the balcony and waited till I'd seen ten different bird species.

and, so,....


---Great Kiskadee

---King Bird

---Barn Swallow

---Yellow-Winged Cacique

---Streak-backed Oriole

---Black Vulture



---Little Blue Heron (pictured above)

Some of the other birds seen from my house--->

Frequently: Cormorants, Woodpeckers, Robins, Hummingbirds, Egrets, Ibises, Kingfishers, Orange-Fronted Parakeets, Green Herons, Pelicans, etc....

Occasionaly/Rarely: Chachalacas, Squirrel-Tailed Cuckoos, Magpie Jays, Painted Buntings, etc...

and, among others, the following birds can be found in the hills nearby:
Trogons (Citreolines and Elegants), Lilac-Crowned Parrots, Military Macaws, and, one of my favorites, Motmots
