last 2 nicaragua birds

Recommended Posts

here are the last 2 unidentifieds i have for my june 2013 trip to san juan del sur, nicaragua

the first bird i had dismissed as a rock pigeon... and it may be..... but the posture of this bird is throwing me off... how upright it is and how 'beefy' the neck is. any thoughts?

the 2nd bird... yup... thats as good as it gets. a point in the right directions would be nice. i was looking at yellow and black crowned night heron because the yellow legs, but the coloring doesnt match up; little blue & tri colored heron *might/could* match up with colors, but all the pics i saw have them dragging their feet well beyond the tail and my pic seems to show the feet pretty tucked up.  maybe not a heron at all? wings seem pretty straight across like a bald eagle. /shrug 

Thanks!

I think the first is a Rock Dove, but wait for more replies on that one. For the second bird, I’d say Striated Heron.

I'd go with Green Heron for the 2nd. Striated is accidental/rare there.  Rock Dove seems right for the first bird.

yeah, i like green heron for that. now that i think about it, there was a green heron (or 2) in the immediate vicinity of where i took that pic. not sure why i didnt think to look at that... i guess i just discounted it as being something else from the get go... thats what i get for assuming 😒
