Birding Five Islands in Six Days - Puerto Rico

My birding in Puerto Rico was limited to three hour at the port in San Juan. I started at 6am.
Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos)
Northern Mockingbird - the white patch on the wings is a helpful field mark to ID this bird
Greater Antillean Grackle (Quiscalus niger) - larger than Carib Grackles but just as noisey
Monk Parakeet (Myiopsitta monachus)
White-winged Dove (Zenaida asiatica)
