Relaxing day at the pond

Today I finally got some rest, mostly out on the balcony looking over our gorgeous pond!  It seemed like everyone was here at some point.  I was super excited to see the mot mot!  Sadly it was only in bad light.  But still!  :-)

 There was plenty of action in the pond.

 I forgot to take pictures of the roseate spoonbills!  So all I have is this guy in the background of the green heron picture.

 Tropical kingbird wants to know what I'm looking at.

 There were plenty of iguanas, this is a black one, there were also a few green ones about.

 There was even a tiger heron for a while!

 This egret soon sensed that something was amiss.

 Muscovy duck!  I've only ever seen domestic versions, but this one looks like a wild one to me. Well, not much white, anyway.
