Cozumel ~ birds and iguanas

Here are some more pictures of my trip to Cozumel, Mexico, last week.   These birds are smaller and I've included a couple of iguana shots also.   Although the northern Yucatan Peninsula and Cozumel Island do not compare well with more southern areas, they are still naturalists' paradises for those willing to get out there and poke around. 
Great-tailed Grackle
Male (above) ~ female (below)

Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
Just over 4" long, looks like a minature mockingbird
American Redstart
Redstarts were very numerous but other warblers were few and far between: one Northern Parula, one Golden Warbler, one Palm Warbler and one Common Yellowthroat.
 A very hungry fledgling persistently follows a parent. 
The locals call this orange-trimmed 4-footer Pedro.  I called him Mister Pedro.   Below, is another 4-footer named Roberto.
Please comment if you wish.
