A frigate preening in flight. I never get tired of watching these guys fly!
My frist troupial! They look like a somewhat fancier Baltimore oriole.
There were a few common ground doves milling about on the ground.

A hummingbird! I saw something small and interesting fly into a bush that was a bit hidden from where I was, and I never did find it, but this guy came over to console me. This was a thrilling sight!
This lizard posed prettily in the sunlight and green leaves. There were several of these around the grounds, but they were quick!
The killdeer from the other side of their field. It's amazing how well they blend. Looking at a picture you would think they'd stick out quite plainly in a field of green grass, but that is not the case in real life!
There were loads of these flycatchers.
Back on the beach after breakfast, watching the shorebirds from the comfort of a chaise lounge. Talk about cushy birdwatching! :-)
There were several green herons, hanging out quite close to each other. I think they might be a family, although I am not skilled enough yet to pick out the juveniles and the adults.
Things take a tern for the better! Hahahaha, yes, it's definitely not a new joke, but there it is nonetheless.
The mighty hunter!
A little blue heron showing us why it's that color.
