Guana Island Water Birds
The White-cheeked Pintail is also known as the Bahama Pintail.
The laughing gull would sometime race to where a pelican had caught a fish and try to steal it. Sometimes, it would sit on the back of the pelican.

We'll post more after we sort through them. The kestrel is a very detailed close up. We were about 4 feet away. The Antillean Crested Hummingbird is elusive and doesn't comb his hair on vacation either. It was amazing to see Flamingos flying. The Pearly-eyed Thrasher would drink from the flowers of this tree every morning. Here is a video of the Thrasher on a flower. The Grey Kingbird is a type of flycatcher.
We moved back to California in June 2012, and we've started a new blog, California Birds. Here are our most recent California photos.
