Yes, just another ho-hum, nothing-special morning. With a few ho-hum, nothing-special birds.
I mean, unless you like honeycreepers. And hummingbirds. On the pretty flowers. Together.
It's awesome when the guide says, Coquette! Coquette! Forget that - come look at this!"
This is the tree the oropendula make their nests in. It was so cool to have it there, and see so many of them so much of the time!
Oh yeah, there were also tanagers a-plenty.
Did I mention hummingbirds? Here's a plumeleteer. You can tell because the feet are pink. It would be even more awesome if it were named the pink-footed plumeleteer, but you can't have everything!
Another tanager. Just, you know, hanging out at the hotel.
Woodcreeper! I love these guys!
People were quite excited about this tyrannulet, but sadly I don't remember and can't tell exactly what kind it is.
And now into breakfast, where we alternated eating with watching the action at the amazing feeders. Check this guy out, he knew he had an audience.

And one final tanager. At last, at last I have a nice picture of a golden-hooded tanager. :-)
