  1. Tropical mockingbirds from Curaçao, pretty common but great subjects imo! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/490233461#_ga=2.27503996.1329853829.1664868657-1235521333.1664437250 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/490231221#_ga=2.99215838.1329853829.1664868657-1235521333.1664437250
  2. A Venezuelan Troupial, I always love to see and hear these birds https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/485825051
  3. Thanks! I was quite lucky that I had the camera in my hand when he started to feed on that flower
  4. Blue-tailed Emerald from Aruba https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/484861491
  5. One from the archives; taken on Sept 16, 2016 in Oviedo, FL
  6. Came across this one yesterday; it's been a while since I looked down instead of up
  7. Apparently the previous link does not work for the top photo, for anyone interested: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/482282711
  8. Maybe a bit late, but I’ll also hop on the Green Heron train 🙂 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/482282331 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/482284921
  9. Rufous-collared Sparrows being cooperative https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/473936351 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/473936301
  10. A Black-faced Grassquit from Aruba https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/473543171 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/473543041
  11. Thanks for the input! Unfortunately I do not have other pictures.. the bird was gone too quickly @Peromyscus. Not sure about the Grashopper Warbler, the tail does not seem to fit in my eyes. If I look at the picture and compare with the Dunnock, I kind of see some similarities such as the gray neck and the small white wing bar. On the other hand the streaking does not seem to fit a Dunnock, as is the dark eye
  12. An Eared and a White-tipped Dove from Curaçao, not sure which I like better https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/472485561 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/472485591
  13. Thanks, I don't think it is a White-rumped as it is much less documented on Aruba. Western is also seen less than Semipalmated I believe so leaning more to the Semipalmated for me as well
  14. This Reddish Egret was very cooperative; however, it was a shame that I could not get any closer due to the water.. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/471765351 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/471764891
  15. Seen some two weeks ago in Aruba (but since they also are observed in the US, I figured I could post it here)
  16. In contrast to the Elaenia, I like this Black-necked Stilt better. I almost forgot that I took this picture until I imported the pictures on the computer, haha. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/471156991 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/471156981
  17. Seen this morning in Arnhem, The Netherlands in a low shrub with water nearby. In the brief moment I observed the bird it seemed to somewhat flap with the wings numerous times. Unfortunately no better pictures and also did not make a sound
  18. In my head, this Caribbean Elaenia should have turned out better… When taking the pictures I was quite pleased since it got very close to us after a while, but seeing the result on the big screen I was less excited. But still a decent enough picture if I compare it to the rest of the “Top photos” from eBird on this species 😄 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470972611 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470972591
  19. The bill first led me to black-crowned but on pictures yellow-crowned sometimes also shows some yellow in the bill and the eye looks more like for the Yellow-crowned? Or is the eye not a distinctive feature and gives the brownish-tint and fine streaking the best indication (Black)? Seen in Aruba 2 weeks ago, but since they are also resident in the US, thought I can also post it here (since more people look here).
  20. How do you like them (Carib) Grackles? https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470748541 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470748531
  21. Snorkeling is indeed absolutely amazing @Clip! It has been my hobby for a long time; every time we visited family in the Caribbean and we went swimming I had my goggles on. This year, however, I thought to myself, let's buy some accessories to make pictures from the wildlife below the sea level. I did already have a Canon G7X mark II which my girlfriend uses extensively when we are on a holiday, let's see if there is an underwater case for this camera that I can buy. Apparently there was one; the Canon WP-DC55. Below is a picture that I took with that setup. It was a bit of an investment, but it payed off big time!
  22. Thanks, much appreciated! Your Snipe is amazing as well
  23. Usually, I don’t like big shorebirds like pelicans because they are “easy” to approach but difficult to get a good photo/composition. However, I quite like this one with the sea splashing in the background. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470487251
