TURKEY VULTURE

Never got fed up of the Turkey Vultures in Cuba



YELLOW CROWNED NIGHT HERON

Always on bridge between two hotels early morning.

TURKEY VULTURE

Just off for Breakfast outside the French Resturant


RED LEGGED THRUSH

A very flighty bird, two kept coming to the cake we put out, but would fly off  and sit in the canopy if they saw anyone. This bird was in the woodland outside Sol Rio de Luna and came out while pisshing for Warblers.

GREATER YELLOWLEGS

Rare migrant through this area, stood with several Black Necked Stilts.

KILLDEER

Cracking birds seen everyday around the sewage works.

GREAT WHITE EGRET

Common mornings and evenings on the lake




BLACK CROWNED NIGHT HERON

Several birds in the area , roosting in the Mangroves around lake edge.

SMOOTH BILLED ANI

We saw these birds several times in Hotels Garden, they call to each other frequently so are easy to pick up, plus they look weird when in flight, very distinctive shape.





LEAST GREBE

About four birds seen most days, though could be hard to see at times as they liked to go under the mangroves along lake edge.





TURKEY VULTURE

A few more shots of the Vultures around Hotel in Cuba










PALM WARBLER

Common all around the hotel grounds and the roads and paths in the area.
