like living in a bird sanctuary

It’s as if our cabin is located in a bird sanctuary. No sooner did we publish a post describing the fascinating range of birds we’re seeing on the ground or in the trees around our cabin, but some new ones drop by for a visit.

First sight out the window yesterday morning was this female Slaty-tailed Trogan.

Later we were returning from a day at the beach to be greeted by this Keel-billed Toucan in the cherry tree beside our cabin.

The Toucan grabbed a cherry and flew to a tree on the other side of the cabin, and what should we see but a group of Montezuma Oropendolas, mostly high in the tree and quite hidden, but this one popped down to a lower branch for just a moment.

No doubt as soon as we click on “publish” another interesting and colourful bird will land in our yard asking for equal blog time!
