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