The Avocado Tree #1

By Karuma1970
We stayed just outside Jardin in Colombia but not for long enough. If we had stayed longer I would have spent a couple of days just sitting on the verandah where we had our breakfast and photographing the birds that visited it for no obvious reason.

The lead is a couple of Tropical Kingbirds. If not Dora will let us know.

V1 must be a finch judging by the head and beak but further than that I can't go. (Yellow headed?)

V2 The delightfully named Bananaquit I think.

I think they weren't quite ripe but the breakfasts were very nice and the coffee was excellent.

What amazing bird images. Bright and Beautiful birds. Debs
Definitely king birds and I think you're right about the finch.

(I have been without internet most of the day and now the site is giving me grief. Resorting to just voting becuase most of what I write doesn't send anyhow.)
