|This male Juvenile (?) Northern Pintail duck arrived on the island in late November. This photo was taken on 30 November 2013, Note the total absence of any of the pintail feathers for which the species is named.|
Here is the Northern Pintail in a fly over, clearly showing its now well developed pintail. It finally disappeared from the pond in mid-March and we assumed that it had started its annual Spring migration back to its northern breeding grounds
The yellow stripe above the eye indicates that this is a juvenile - in adult birds the stripe is white.
The Caribbean Elaenia, the TRUE Pee-whittler or Pee-Whistler, is one of the flycatchers that frequent the flowering trees, seeking insects.
The Grey Kingbirds, often INCORRECTLY referred to as the Pee-whittler, are always around seeking insects in flight. This one has caught a bee!
