Thanks +Mike Haley The head and breast of the Bannaquit and Kiskadee are very similar, but looking at various sources of ID'ing them, the difference seems to be the beak and the colour of their backs/wings.

This guy certainly has a thick bill and looking at other pictures of the same bird, the wings/back were brownish which would certainly say Kiskadee.

When I compare it to confirmed Bannaquit shots I have, I can see the difference.

I'll correct the posting.

Story
Introduction
Been shooting for a lot of years. Moved from slides to digital in 2004. (Still have 25,000+ slides stored)

Have tended to be mainly a nature photographer, especially birds and mammals.

Lately have become more of a travel photographer taking more "record" shots as have become a "cruiser" and that does not leave time in any one port to do really serious photography.
