Wild Bird Wednesday

Back from a wonderful week in Puerto Vallarta. It was an absolutely fantastic birding week for me, I was able to add more than a dozen birds to my life list!!

Here's a Yellow Crowned Night Heron.



And here is a Juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Heron doing it's best to be invisible.


Another picture of the adult, love that little feather that comes off the top of their head


Here I am birding at one of the spots in Puerto Vallarta, I saw so many amazing birds!!!

  9. A great birding spot and country Kristi. We spent two lovely weeks in Puerto Plata some years ago, visited Puerto Vallarta and saw nice birds along the way.
