The following blog posts are organized by location/site. Bird species/photos will be duplicated as the different species were seen in more than one location.
The first stop - the hotel I stayed at! As you can see, it is about as urban as it could be. But just as in the States, some birds can make anything work, and for some, the presence of people actually are benefits they use.

|The other direction, from the balcony.|
|First species - Magnificent Frigatebird! And indeed they are.|
|This male was searching for food inevitably dropped by humans,|
as well as nesting material.
|Gray-breasted Martins were nesting on the side of the apartment|
very near the hotel. Martins sound like martins the world over;
thank goodness for that. I look forward to the Purple Martins
returning to MN very soon!
