Still the most-seen bird . . .

. . . in my garden, the Yigüirro or Clay-colored Thrush (eBird link) who is no longer singing his longing melody that tradition says is him calling in the rain for rainy season to begin. It began with June and we’ve had rain every afternoon since! So I think he is a happy bird! 🙂 But overall, this june I’m seeing fewer varieties of both birds and butterflies than usual. I’m hoping that won’t be true of the rainforest I visit next week! 🙂

  1. Our most common bird “up the street” are Rufus nape wren , which we call chicos. They love bananas and we often have 6 of them at a time. We think they might be a family. They have 2 nests in our yard. Speaking of bananas, we cannot put whole bananas out because the mot mots try to fly with the whole thing! Which only results in their being dropped in the woods and wasted.

  2. You have a great location for birds Steve! And a fruit feeder doesn’t hurt! 🙂 Those wrens are my second most common right now and then White-winged Doves and Chachalacas. But I’m beginning to see a bigger variety for which I credit the rain, like a woodpecker and a warbler today!
