Well, not really. I’m going to post some pictures of birds the world can flip through, but that wouldn’t be much of a title, now, would it?
These were taken in Mexico, basically the southern part – Yucatan, Chiapas.
So, hopefully I got your attention! And the second hopeful thing is that you like pictures of birds. I’ve shot a few – with a camera. I can’t remember the last time I hunted anything, That’s just not me.
Anywho, the photos will be listed together – where I took the shots.
If you’re a bird watcher, there are some great places in Mexico and Central America to watch them. God’s creations are marvelous things, and bird watching is one of the most relaxing I can think of. Again, these are just from Mexico.
If you know the name of these birds, feel free to inform me – I don’t have bird book and would love to hear the names of some of these beautiful birds.
Just outside Cancun’s touristy place is a small swamp. Alligators are said to live there. but I never saw one. What I did see were some interesting birds. I’ll put up a map of the Cancun area, in case you visit and would like to see this particular spot.
Don’t know why, but I get visions of Donald Trump when I look at this bird!
I call this guy the Leopard bird.
Another shot of the “Leopard” bird. I saw about 4 of these in the swamp outside Cancun.
A bird drying his feathers off. These are all around any water that you find in Mexico.
These are quite common around the waters of Mexico.
This is a quote I like, attached to a picture I shot of some birds over the waters on a Cancun Beach.
This bird is just getting ready to snatch his next meal!
This is another bird that reminds me of Trump – it’s going to be a huuuugee hit, I can tell!
Here’s a pink legged, pink billed bird that wanders the swamp.
This is just a pigeon.
But, it’s a good example of what my mind feels like after traveling a day in Mexico. Roads leave a lot to be desired, with topes (speed bumps), traffic, lack of signage to understand where one is at, pedestrians in the streets in most town, policia to watch out for (they’ll pull you over just because you’re a foreigner, and a few things I’m sure I missed. Driving in Mexico is a challenge!
Some birds shot along the shores of Cancun, Mexico with some quotes I like.
Flying would be fun!
Well, I hope you enjoyed the pictures I’ve posted. As I stated at eh beginning of this post, here’s a map that shows where you can bird watch within a short distance from the touristy area of Cancun, Mexico. Taxi would probably run you 50 pesos.
On the way to Isla Mujeres, you’ll see a sign on your left hand sign warning about alligators. It’s a small side street. One side has houses, the other side is the swamp. You can sit on the edge of that road and watch birds to your hearts content.
Thanks for visiting The Big Mozey, hope to hear from you and to see you again!
