2017 Photographic Big Year 75 - 77

Week 30 -  Migrants are starting to return from nesting grounds in North America , some even earlier than expected but still very little birds are on the ground.  I was still able to add three more species of birds  to my photo big year tally.  These birds were Whimbrel, one of the largest shorebird in the world, Green-throated Carib,the large of our two hummers nesting on the island, and one of the smallest shorebirds around , Collared Plover
