Did you know - A group of pelicans has many collective nouns, including a "brief", "pod", "pouch", "scoop", and "squadron" of pelicans.

Lusas, I was hunting Coues in Mexico 130 miles SSE of Nogales Mex.. In the morning around the tent blind and back in the thicket, there must have been dozens of them. Out they all came to drink. Neat bird. The other bird was a dove, hundreds of them came to water right a first light. This hawk had his pick.

Nick, you are correct, lots of different species. Thanks for the post.

When I was down in Compeche three weeks ago Occelated Turkey hunting I asked if I could shoot and bring back white winged tree ducks or the long tailed jays? Can’t send them back. I did want to open up on those Chacalacas that are so annoying in the morning. One tree full starts then another and another. Remind me of Guinea hens. I always enjoy listening to and seeing different birds when traveling. Thanks fo the pictures.

Down where I was there were fireflys and some other bioluminescent insects that would light up like Diana’s when the flashlight hit them.

I can’t wait for my bird watching expedition south of the border. T-minus 2 days. Cajunarcher and I will be having a contest to see who tallies the most species. I’ll keep my eye out for the red breasted thruster and the sore throated swallow, Troy.

From: t-roy
20-Jan-22
Most likely, it will be a double breasted thruster that far south, BEG. The red breasted ones rarely migrate much south of the Canadian border.

Irregardless, either one of the species is spectacular, especially in their breeding plumage. Good luck and looking forward to the pics!

From: esean

I've done a few trips into the jungles of Belize and Guatemala. If you can make it into the Yucatan lowlands, Maya Mountains or upland cloud forests its simple amazing. Trogans, quetzals, toucans, macaws, crested guans, white hawks, wood storks, bat falcons ... it's simply amazing. Of course there's also dengue fever, Zika virus, leishmaniasis, malaria, bot flies, fer-de-lance (big pit vipers) and such. Every winter I start dreaming about doing another trip, but life keeps getting in the way.

Birds in Mexico are really very beautiful and interesting. There really live a lot of rare birds. I dream of visiting Mexico for a very long time. This desire appeared not only because of the beautiful and rare flora and fauna. I am also interested in their culture, people, historical sights. In my memory, Mexico has been preserved as a poor country, but I know that this has not been the case for a long time. There are a lot of articles and videos on the Internet confirming this. One of these articles can be found at https://destinationscanner.com/is-mexico-a-third-world-country/. Am I wondering the best time to travel to Mexico to meet her is? Naturally, all the same, I find interesting flora and fauna.
