Mexico. Yucatan. A bit of birdwatching

Rest time: 31.01 - 11.02. 2020

In the spring a certain birder
I caught quails:
Lay in the thick grass for hours
I looked at my net from afar, -
We caught the quails ourselves.
(from)

Not really lying, and not so much on our own. But, unlike the Gambia, he did not specifically chase birds. As a result, the catch is small, but there is something.

First, aquatic and semi-aquatic.

Let's start with the boobies.

And of them - from the most notable bird of Yucatan - The magnificent frigate (Fregata magnificens). There is a sea of ​​them, you just need to raise your eyes to the sky:

There are thousands of them, and since frigates are not able to fish on their own, there is an opportunity to observe the process of selection of prey from more successful pelicans and gulls. Alas, the selection can only be recorded on video, and I'm not fond of it.

But there are photos of frigates! Alas, the male in breeding attire only in flight and at the limit of the zoom, but with the females on the island of Contoy he was lucky

Cormorants (Phalacrocoracidae) were ubiquitous as long as the water was near, but there were especially many of them on Rio Lagartos. I found it difficult to classify the species I encountered.

American snake (Anhinga anhinga) met directly at the hotel, and did not have to go anywhere

Pelicans opened up to us in two species.

Constantly catching your eye American Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)

and once and caught a glimpse of Rio Lagartos American White Pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos)

Heron. Many are already familiar from the Gambia

Spill on the river.
Even a heron in the water
Legs are short.
(from)

Great egret (Ardea alba). Rio Lagartos and the lagoon by the hotel

Great blue heron (Ardea herodias). Rio Lagartos and the hotel lawn

Little blue heron (Egretta caerulea). Playa Las Perlas

Yellow-headed night heron (Nyctanassa violacea). Kotoy Island

American Green Heron (Butorides virescens). Hotel lagoon

Ibis were represented by two types

White ibis (Eudocimus albus). In different parts of the lagoon Hotelier's Zone

AND Pink spoonbill (Platalea ajaja). Rio lagartos

And storks and generally one

American beak (Mycteria americana). Rio lagartos

Like flaming

Red flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber). Rio lagartos

With sandpipers in Yucatan, there was a complete seam: one trifle. Yes, and that - not a lot. Everything is along the coastline.

Stonebead (Arenaria interpres)

Gerbil (Calidris alba)

Spotted carrier (Actitis macularius)

That's the whole catch of waders ..

As usual, I did not bother with the classification of gulls. Just seagulls :)

I will complete the near-water part Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), found on the island of Kotoy. I also saw on Rio Lagartos, but far away

Either Brown-winged chachalaks (Ortalis vetula), or Gray-breasted chachalaks (Ortalis poliocephala) met in the archaeological area of ​​Tulum and in the Urbano-Coba park of Cancun. But in the first case, they were shy and did not let them get close, and in the second, as already mentioned, the camera refused, so I shot it on my phone

Ringed dove (Streptopelia decaocto). Hotel and grounds of the archaeological site of San Migelito

Yucatan jay (Cyanocorax yucatanicus). We noticed a flock of flying jays in the archaeological zone of Tulum, but we managed to photograph only the foliage that sat in the shade, where the camera did not transmit the acid-blue colors of the plumage of the wings and tail.

Singing mourning corpse (Dives dives). Tulum archaeological site

and ubiquitous (but closer to people) met Large-tailed grackle (Quiscalus mexicanus). Black males and brown females constantly flickered before our eyes, replacing crows and pigeons at the same time in the city.

Big Pitanga (Pitangus sulphuratus). I also met constantly, even from the hotel it was possible not to leave. So photogenic that if I had a film camera, I would have put more than one reel on it.

Funeral royal tyrant (Tyrannus melancholicus). The territory of the hotel.

Tropical songbird (Mimus gilvus). Distributed everywhere

River singer (Parkesia noveboracensis). Archaeological site of San Migelito

That's the whole catch. I understand that it is not a lot, but - that is! But there is a good reason to return.

PS: as always, corrections and additions are welcome!
