And so we get to No.2 in my wife's top 20 bird shots from Trinidad and Tobago - this is the same bird as yesterday's but now he's turned round to show just how long his bill is, and the change of angle means the colours are reflected differently.

Hitting the dizzy heights of No.3 of my wife's top twenty bird shots from Trinidad and Tobago is this Long-billed Starthroat.

#seagullbuttscarer  
A trip to the coast to visit my wife's sister should have yielded a few opportunities for some shots for the theme that isn't #seagullbuttsaturday  - However a stroll along the prom yielded no opportunities whatsoever but then my wife said, "bird of prey!"( I must admit my first thought was she'd been hitting the gin a trifle early). Turns out a couple of the hoteliers have combined to pay a local falconer to fly his Harris Hawk as a gull deterrent.....
A real gull world WMD (Wingspan of Much Distraction)

Maybe of passing interest to the #gulluminati

This is No.5 in my wifes Top Twenty favourite bird shots from Trinidad and Tobago. I liked this bird, as much as anything, because it was completely "natural" in that there were no feeders anywhere remotely close to attract hummers in.
Also, especially for +Marilou Aballe
