A few more birds from the Yucatan

Recommended Posts

1. Think you have two individuals here, a Reddish Egret and then a Little Blue Heron

2. Great Blue Heron, white morph.  Note the heavy-set, pale bill

3. Pass

I was thinking the same on the first thee...the last one...I think it would show more blue green if it were a mangrove? Similar to a violet grew.

Thank you both so much!  I didn't notice I had two different birds in the first set of pictures... :classic_blush: 

Yes, the swallow is sort of confusing because of the color of the feathers... I think this is a juvenile, so maybe that explains it?

The swallow does look like a juvenile Mangrove Swallow -- the white blaze just behind the bill is typical of the species.
