Yellow-crowned Night Heron (Nyctanassa violacea), Yucatan, Mexico (July 2018). Their are two species of night heron in the Americas: Yellow-crowned and Black-crowned. I’m most familiar with the Black-crowned Night Herons that we frequently see in N. California. I’ve only previously seen Yellow-crowned at a distance. We got our our best views of them while they perched above the water on an early morning boat ride of the coast of Rio Lagartos. The Yellow-crowned Night Heron has a fairly large range and can be found on the East Coast of the U.S. from southern New England all the way to South America.

The Yucatán woodpecker (Melanerpes pygmaeus) is sometime referred to as the red-vented woodpecker. The Yucatán woodpecker also is found in Belize and Honduras, as well as Mexico, ranging over the entire Yucatán Peninsula. (Yucatan, Mexico, 2018).

We saw and heard several Ferruginous Pygmy Owls (Glaucidium brasilianum) in Mexico. I had no idea that we would encounter so many of these little beauties tucked away in trees, in both populated (by humans that is :) and unpopulated areas. They are small owls and adults are only 15–17 cm in overall length (nearly 6 inches). They breed in Arizona in the United States, through Mexico and Central America. The reason we saw so many is not only was our guide skilled at finding them, but these owls hunt during the day--meaning they are diurnal as opposed to nocturnal hunters. They are skilled predators and eat birds, lizards, insects, small mammals, and frogs. I think that this one was disappointed when it realized that Diego was not actually another owl.

We saw several endemic birds in Mexico, including the Yucatan Wren (Campylorhynchus yucatanicus) (2018), which is only found on the narrow coastal strip of the northern Yucatán Peninsula. Their conservation statusis Near Threatened and its habitat is subtropical or tropical dry shrubland. This pair liked the high wires above a field of yucca.

I had never seen a Magnificent Frigatebird (Fregata magnificens) perched in a tree prior to our recent trip to the Yucatan. I have seen them on several occasions soaring (magnificently I might add 🙂 ) above the water, or sometimes swooping down close to boats or land trying to steal fish from fishing boats. When we recently saw dozens of these large birds, with wingspans reaching up to 8 feet, on perches in the mangrove trees at the Ria Lagartos lagoon, we thought it was an extraordinary if somewhat comical sight. These large graceful flyers struck awkward and unusual poses as they perched, almost looking like they weren't sure what to do with their wings. This one in particular had an unusual wing folding strategy.

Immature Green Heron, Yucatan, Mexico (2018). We found a raucous family or two of these herons hunting at a small pond. The breeze gave this bird a temporary mohawk and created an interesting wave pattern on the water.

Larger than a Snowy Egret, smaller than a Great Blue Heron, the Tri-colored Heron (Egretta tricolor) nests on both coasts of Mexico, and is found from the Southern United States all the way to Peru.

A preening Green Heron (Butorides virescens) ,Yucatan, Mexico (July 2018). Green Herons are one of favorite birds. Their feathers have a beautiful hue and they're one of the few tool-using birds. To my surprise, we saw several species in the Yucatan that are also common in California, including Green Heron, Great Egret, Snowy Egret, and Cattle Egret. Of course, there were many new birds there and I have a few more to share.

Crimson-backed Sunbird or Small Sunbird The crimson-backed sunbird or small sunbird(Leptocoma minima) is a sunbird endemic to the Western Ghats of India. Like other sunbirds, they feed mainly on nectar although they take insects, especially to feed their young. They are tiny birds that are resident and are found in forests but are particularly attracted to gardens at the edge of the forest where people grow suitable flower-bearing plants. They usually perch while taking nectar. . . . #wildlifphotography #birdphotography #birdingfriends #birding #birdwatching #pocket_birds #indianwildlifeofficial #eye_spy_birds #sunbird #forest #planetearth #wild #avian #birds_adored #birdsofinstagram #travelphotography #naturephotography #birds_ig #bird_captures #india #westernghats #your_best_birds #thebirdingsquad

The distinctively svelte silhouette of this elegant (my opinion) bird earned it several somewhat ignominious nicknames such as: "snake bird" or "water turkey" (no offense to turkeys I hope :) In Brazil, where its name originated, the word Anhinga means devil or snake bird. It is also called a darter--which seems appropriate because it does look like a dart in the water. I was thrilled to finally get close to this bird on our recent visit to the Yucatan, Mexico (July 2018), as I had previously only seen an Anhinga at a distance. One factoid that I find interesting is that unlike most waterbirds, such as cormorants, which it resembles, the Anhinga doesn't have waterproof feathers and they can often be seen perched with wings out drying off in the sun after a swim.

One of the most common birds that we saw in Mexico, and by that I mean frequency of sightings, was the Tropical Kingbird (Tyrannus melancholius and X'takay in Maya). They were literally everywhere we went on the peninsula. They look similar to the Western Kingbird that I see in California and, in fact, occasionally we see a vagrant Tropical Kingbird here as well. To my relatively untrained eye, they are hard to tell apart. Adult Tropical Kingbirds are grey-olive on the upperparts with a grey head and a dark line through the eyes. Eating habits of these birds differ than their similar looking cousins as the Tropical Kingbird forages almost exclusively by sallying after large flying insects.

The Common Black Hawk (Buteogallus anthracinus) was another life bird for me on our recent visit to the Yucatan (July 2018). I learned that these birds, like osprey, feed on fish, but unlike osprey it feeds mainly on crabs (and occasionally will take other small vertebrates and eggs.) We saw several of these hawks perched over the water around great stands of mangroves near Ria Lagartos, Mexico.

I still remember capturing this beauty. Well of course its a very common bird for regular bird watchers but those who doesn't know any other birds than crow and sparrow for them this may be something interesting. The bird's name is coppersmith barbet. And why so? Because of its voice. You will often here 'Tak-Tak' when you go out for a walk little away from the city life. The voice resembles the sound created by Coppersmith while doing his job.. Well, I was out for a regular hill walk along with my canon and heard this voice. Since I already have image of this bird I chose to ignore it in order to save some time but suddenly I saw it entering into his house carved in a tree branch. That was something interesting for me and I decided to wait there for few minutes to observe the bird. Apparently the bird was bringing some food from nearby place and feeding the same to his chicks (I think so, coz I never saw the chicks). I sat there for around 10 mins to observe it.. Got some good clicks and suddenly the bird disappears and I went ahead to observe few more birds... . . . #birds #birdsofinsta #barbet #canon #beautiful #birding #ig_birds #birds_ig #photooftheday #birdwatching #birdsofindia #nature #fun #beautifulday #photography #instagood #igers #igdaily

When we saw this bird perched in the tree, I didn't guess that it was a roadrunner. The roadrunner's that I see in California are usually on the ground and often--well--they are running. :) This Lesser Roadrunner (Geococcyx velox) is a cousin of the Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus). The lesser version is distributed along the west coast of Central America from northern Mexico south to Nicarauga. The birds that we saw on the Yucatan Peninsula are a disjunct population--meaning that they appear in a geographic location that is not contiguous or adjacent to the main population. In any event, it would have been nice if it had been on the ground running and even nicer if it had just caught a snake. But then again, I remember how hot and humid it was the day that we saw it, and the shade in the tree looked pretty good to me too. I'm don't feel much like running about in the heat either. (Yucatan, Mexico, July 2018).

I have seen Little Blue Herons (Egretta caerulea) before at Assateague State Park in Maryland, U.S., but never in juvenile plumage. When I was looking through the many photos of birds that I took in the Yucatan, Mexico, recently I did a double take when I saw this photo of a young Little Blue Heron. I'm not an expert and even though I may see a bird in the field when on a birding expedition, I often see so many birds that my chances of remembering all the names are pretty slim. So, when I get home I have to research IDs of birds that I have photos of in order to share them with you. This photo was a surprise to me. At first I thought that it might be a leucistic Great Blue Heron. Leucism is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy feather colors. I've seen this condition before in hummingbirds, hawks, and other species. Then I thought: "could this be an egret with melanism?" Melanism, or melanosis, is a condition caused by a genetic mutation that gives a bird excess amounts of melanin or dark pigmentation in its feathers. I've also seen this in other birds, mostly birds of prey like dark morph Red-tailed Hawks. But when I started looking, I was surprised to read that the Little Blue Heron starts out in white plumage, gradually getting darker until it is a slaty blue with a reddish head. This is to say, that my best guess is that this is a Little Blue in juvenile plumage. :) Another day, another bird! #audubonca #aves #bb_of_ig #bestbirdshots #bird_brilliance #birds_adored #birds_captures #nature_worldwide_birds #nuts_about_birds #ptk_birds_animals #raw_birds #animalpolis #total_birds #your_best_birds #野鳥 #eye_spy_birds #birds_private #birds_ig #birdlovingfanclub #YourShotPhotographer #udog_feathers #Excellent_Nature #Nature_of_our_world #kings_birds #best_birds_planet #best_birds_of_world #9vaga_birds9 #naturyst #audubonsociety #TheWildlifeBiologist #best_birds_of_world
