Mazatlan Birds

I saw a few new birds while in Mazatlan. And did a lot of reading. How could you ask for a better holiday than that?

Social Flycatcher

Orchard Oriole

Orchard Oriole (female)

Gila Woodpecker

Broad-billed Hummingbird

Each morning I try to get up a little early to check out what birds might be in the yard. Here’s a few I’ve gotten so far:

Vermilion Flycatcher

Wilson’s Warbler

Black-headed Grosbeak

Curve-billed Thrasher


We saw a lot of hummingbirds in Costa Rica. These are just the ones I got pictures of. Hopefully I’ve identified them correctly. (Steve, have I made any mistakes?)
