Camera Critters # 111 - Birds from Mexico


Here are some birds I saw on my trip to Mexico. This Barn Swallow came to the deck every morning to sing. Please feel free to correct the names.
A Vermilion Flycatcher, what a neat bird.
A Tropical Flycatcher, it was quite colorful.
A Peacock at the Hacienda below strutting his stuff.
Visit the site above to see a lot of great critters.

That was so neat with the swallow visiting you, whenever I see them they are always on the wing; much to fast for me to catch a shot!
