Birthdays and birds in Cozumel

My wife and I just returned from Cozumel, along with our two daughters, two sons-in-law, four grandchildren, and another set of grandparents.   We celebrated my wife's birthday and the birthday of one of our sons-in-law.   I'm very happy to report a good time was had by all.   I saw appproximately 50 species of birds during the trip, of which about half were life-birds for me.   I have finally reached the 400-mark on my life list!   Below are  some of the birds I photographed in Mexico.
Black-necked Stilts

Jacana
Jacana ( juvenile )
White Ibis ( immature/1st spring )
Tricoloured Heron ( immature )
Great Egret ( breeding plumage )
Little Blue Heron ( immature )
Snowy Egrets ( plus ibises and heron )
Caspian Tern
My next blog will include pictures of some smaller birds and iguanas.   Please comment if you wish.
