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

I agree. But I do not know about 3 and 8.

For 8, the back is too green to be Tropical, the only other similar one in the area. For 3, I’m actually second guessing myself on that one currently.

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.

No other pictures of that one or do I recall any sound.  It was a quick shot as it flew away.   Thanks for the ideas and trying, I really appreciate it.
