Belize part 2.

Recommended Posts

Hello All Again,

Here is a first in a series from my recent trip to Belize.  Some I'm pretty sure on, others no ID since it was my first trip to Central America and the Caribbean.  All photos taken last week on the Placencia peninsula or surrounding areas.  This part will have aquatic and shorebirds.  

1.  Anhinga


2. Magnificent Frigatebird (I think)


I think the same as 2.


3 Double-Crested Cormorant (I think, not sure in this area and not a great pict.) 


4.  Unknown Kingfisher 


5. I think this is an immature 


6.  Little Blue Heron 




8. Super long shot and parting shot :)  


thanks for all of your help, as always

For 8, I'm leaning Tropical Kingbird, with those dark tail/wings. The back is not too green. @bpresby, do you have a picture of the primary (outer wing) feathers/know what the kingbird's call sounded like? If not, I think it's best to leave it as a Tropical/Couch's Kingbird, unless you can get an expert's opinion.
