Parque La Florida , Bogota Part Two.

This is the second half of the photos I took today at the Parque La Florida, just behind the airport at Bogota, Colombia. There is a really large area of wetlands with a path going right through them.

I could not believe it when I saw these amazing birds. They were so bright.

I think this is either a female or juvenile Yellow-hooded Blackbird.

Shiny Cowbird  - male

The male is all black and shiny while the female is all drab and brown.
