We took a trip to Guana Island in BVI. Here are some of the photos we took.
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.
