Cuban black-throated blue warblers and pygmy owl

Black-throated blue warbler, 10 March 2017

Still 10 March 2017, in a nature reserve not far from Camaguey city in Cuba. After seeing the ovenbird and other birds there, we saw this male black-throated blue warbler, on his way back to North America. Sometimes he was on the ground, sometimes on a fallen log.

The bus went back. 13:35: a great egret along the road.

We went to Belen nature reserve, like yesterday.

Then, a special bird: a Cuban pygmy owl. Though it was small and hiding on a big tree, we did see it.
