Yesterday I returned from my service project in Acapulco, Mexico.
We were working with an orphanage there, and my time was pretty filled up with that.
However, in the mornings I was able to walk along the streets around the campus and see what birds I could find.
I found four new life birds on the trip: Bare-throated Tiger-Heron, Dusky-capped Flycatcher, Audubon’s Oriole, and Rufous-naped Wren.
Flycatchers are everywhere there. You can’t hardly walk outside without seeing/hearing Social Flycatchers, Great Kiskadees and Tropical Kingbirds. I’ve taken lots of pictures of these birds, but I never tire of taking more.
The Rufous-naped Wren was the one lifer I was able to photograph. It’s not the best photo in the world, but I’ll take it for now.
Other common birds in the area were Ruddy-ground Dove, Gray-breasted Martin, and Cinnamon Hummingbird. Someone across the street has a hummingbird feeder, and so there were other hummingbirds around.
