Earlier, we had already seen a scissor-tailed flycatcher on a tree.
A bit later than the parakeets, a turquoise-browed motmot couple.
Many waders are present. Including western sandpipers. They have migrated here for winter from their nesting grounds in Alaska. They have relatively long bills. Semipalmated sandpipers, present here as well; they are the majority on the photo. They have shorter bills. They nest not only in Alaska, but in Arctic Canada as well.
Many grey plovers in the salt pan to the right.
A short-billed dowitcher in “our” pan.
And black-necked stilts.
To the left, a lone least sandpiper.
Magnificent frigatebirds fly overhead.
We continue to the Colorado harbour.
White-fronted parrots on mangrove trees. They are not shy. Maybe half-tame?
Laughing gulls swim in the ocean.
Turnstones sit on mangrove branches.
A snowy egret flying.
More magnificent frigatebirds flying.
White ibises on mangrove branches.
We go back.
