  1. I don't know what other besides those two should be considered. However, between those two, I also would favor Sulphur-bellied. Here is a link that compares the two: https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjPjNi9-pbfAhWjMnwKHUKVCG8QjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.es%2Fpin%2F302515299947304720%2F&psig=AOvVaw0ObHgyekaV7gY0SD0FSBSb&ust=1544589452359315
  2. Hard to say with the photos, but Aplomado is extremely rare in QR.
  3. My first guess was Bat Falcon, but it would be nice to see it a bit better to be sure.
  4. 1. Melodious Blackbird 2. Red-lored Parrots 3/4. Clay-colored Thrush. Not sure on the flycatcher in front, but perhaps a Tropical Kingbird.
  5. I'd agree with Social. The most similar species is White-ringed Flycatcher, but they aren't on the Pacific side (and the bill looks better for Social anyway).
  6. Bare-throated. You can exclude Fasciated almost only by habitat. Fasciated are along fast moving rocky streams/rivers. Also you can see a bit of the bare throat, and the barring would extend up onto the cheeks of a Fasciated.
  7. Agree with others, and I'm fairly sure both 2 and 3 are Common Black Hawks. Legs look shorter than expected for Great on the adult, and the facial pattern on the young one looks better for Common because of the dark and thick malar.
  8. Ok, that makes sense. I saw Chestnut-bellied Coronets at Guango and Fork-tailed Woodnymphs at WildSumaco.
  9. I hadn't noticed that this bird was seen a week before, so most likely gone by now and no rush to post...
  10. Were all of the photos from Tandayapa? Fork-tailed Woodnymph and Chestnut-bellied Coronet do not occur there.
  11. Looks fine for a normal BT Green to me. The hybrid Hermit x Townsend's that I've seen can come in two varieties. The typical appearance would show some obvious yellow bleeding into the breast and flanks. A rare form of the hybrid is more confusing and looks more like a BTNW, but has a stronger facial pattern like a Townsend's.
  12. Agree, excellent find for Nevada. Be sure to post to the list serve if you can, or at least to eBird.
  13. 1. Green-crowned Brilliant 2. Collared Inca 3. Chesnut-bellied Coronet
  14. Yes, agree that date and location are very helpful. Agree with Buff-tailed Coronet. The Woodnymph could also be a Crowned Woodnymph if is from the west; if from the east, then Fork-tailed.
  15. Looking forward to the rest of this trip report! Haven't decided yet if I'll do a formal trip report. Don't want to hi-jack this thread, but at least for now I've finally finished all my photos and they are in a Flickr album. Warning, there are like 600 photos! Even more photos have been uploaded to eBird.
  16. Been enjoying reading about your experiences, except hearing about species you saw that I didn't!!!
  17. My thoughts are very much like JimBob's. I certainly haven't been as active here as I used to be, and I considered not rejoining. However, I do still like to check in every once in a while, especially for trip reports. I must say, I'll be really bummed if the old trip reports are lost. Myself and many others have spent a lot of time creating those reports.
