El Remate Birding Part Two

Biotopo Cerro Cahui Part Two

Tbis is part two of my walk along the lake at El Remate. I went for a walk along the track at the Biotopo itself, but I got attacked my a million mosquitoes and you could not seen anything because the track was covered over by bushes and trees. I went about half way and turned back. There were hardly any birds along the track anyway. There were more along the lake road.

Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture
Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture (Cathartes burrovianus)

I thought this was a Turkey Vulture at first so I did not pay much attention to it. I was wrong, doh! I cannot remember if I saw one at Palenque or not.

Red-winged Blackbird
Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoenicus)

I knew I had seen this one in the book, I thought it was a cowbird at first but it is a blackbird. It was just sitting by the lake preening itself. Thank you very much.

Purple Gallinule
Purple Gallinule (Porphyrio martinicus)

Another Porhyrio Swamphen. I have seen quite a lot of porphyrios in my travels.

Canivet's Emerald (Chlorostilbon
Canivet’s Emerald (Chlorostilbon canivetii)

This one was in the yard of the guest hous where I am staying.

Black-headed Trogon
Black-headed Trogon (Trogon melanocephalus) Trogón cabecinegro

Another one in the yard of the guest house. Just sitting around having breakfast and up it pops. Nice.

Yellow Warbler - male
Yellow Warbler (Setophaga petechia) male

See the beautiful reddish stripes on the belly.

Canada Warbler
Canada Warbler (Cardinella canadensis)

The Canada Warbler has a nice necklace of black with a white ring around the eye.
