The pics!

After a few more tries, I finally made it... (Slow like this snail)


Pictures are not perfect but it is what we've got, what are these guys? I bet the one staring at us is way ahead identifying 'us'. (Click on them to enlarge)


On the way back from the park, we found this on our street, taking care of the feathers...


And then sitting quiet, planning the next move. I think this is an Amazilia Hummingbird (Amazilia amazilia), known here as 'Amazilia costeña' or 'Colibrí de vientre rufo'.
For those of you who don't speak Spanish, 'colibrí' means hummingbird. Please, feel free to send your comments and if you think I'm right with this one!

Hi Mel!

I'm glad you visited me today. I'm a beginner, too, so I don't think I can help you with bird IDs in your country since I'm still learning birds in the U.S.! I enjoy you writing style and your enthusiam. There are a lot of bird experts out there who know birds around the world like Bill of the Birds.

I do know you have a hummingbird there and wish you a lot a fun in birding. I'll be checking in on you :o)

Hi Mel,

This is my second try. I might have lost my first comment out there in cyberspace.

I would love to help you with IDs but I'm a beginner, too. I'm still learning birds in the U.S.! I enjoy your writing style and enthusiam. There are a lot of knowledge bird experts who know world birds, like Bill of the Birds.

Good luck and have fun. I'll be checking on you.
