Valladolid Birding Day 3.

Day three at Xkobek camping and bee farm. A few more birds. They keep rolling in. It is like Groundhog Day.

Altamira Oriole
Altamira Oriole (Icterus gularis)

The first bird I saw in the morning even before I had a cup of coffee!

White-fronted Parrot
White-fronted Parrot (Amazona albifrons)

There were about four or five of these skwarking away. (How do you spell squarking. ???? )

Magnolia Warbler
Magnolia Warbler (Setophaga magnolia)

Another flitting bird that was difficult to photograph. I should stop whingeing. (How do you spell whinging?)

Rufous-browed Peppershrike
Rufous-browed Peppershrike (Cyclarhis gujanensis)

I have no idea. I scoured the book and the internet but could not identify this bird. doh! Edit: I found it thanks to the clues from the Facebook ID crew. Rufous-browed Peppershrike (Cyclarhis gujanensis).

 Turquoise-browed Motmot
Turquoise-browed Motmot (Eumomota superciliosa)

It is hard not to photograph these pretty birds.

Golden-fronted Woodpecker
Golden-fronted Woodpecker (Melanerpes aurifrons)

This Golden-fronted Woodpecker has got his tongue right down this hole in the tree.

Great Kiskadee
Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus)

A Great Kiskadee having a big stretch for some fruit off a tree.
