Long Billed Dowicher On Log
I was quite surprised to the see these shore birds dwarfed by the peacefull mallards. Generally Mallards are enough of a pain that other birds don't hang out.
Species: Limnodromus scolopaceus (Long-billed Dowitcher)

Western Sandpipers Flying Away
I like how they are all sticking out there legs from the take off. These little birds will migrate from Northern Canada to South America.
Species: Calidris mauri (Western Sandpiper)

Pied Billed Grebe With Chick
This bird was very far away and wasn't getting any closer.
Species: Podilymbus podiceps (Pied-billed Grebe)

House Finch Off Deck
I usually call these "Little Brown Jobby" and just pass because I don't have long enough lenses to capture small birds. This bird was close enough that I could get a decent image.

Green Hummingbird Sticking Tongue Out
There is so little to identify a species with here.

White-necked Jacobin Hummingbird
When I came back from Costa Rica, I discovered they have way more than the two species you see Vancouver so I dubbed this "Blue Headed Hummingbird". The internet showed me the error of my ways.
Species: Florisuga mellivora (White-necked Jacobin)

Green Thorntail Hummingbird (Female)
I believe this is a Female Green Thorntale based on images I found on the internet. The males have nice wispy tails.
Species: Discosura conversii (Green Thorntail)

Rufous Hummingbird
This tree was maybe 5 feet high but it was out of the wind so bird could rest and see anything coming. He was skittish - even 20 feet away away he would alight.

Species: Selasphorus rufus (rufous hummingbird)

Hummingbird Flapping
Now I really like Hummingbirds. The next goal should be to get rid of the feeder.

Red Turtle Dove In Palm Tree
There were a few doves around the resort - mostly in the palm trees. They seemed to be nesting, but I couldn't get a good angle to verify that.

Red Wing Blackbird Comparison
Red Wing Blackbirds were quite common in the Marsh - you could easily see two or three at any time. I thought it would be handy to have a photo of a Red Winged Blackbird in similar light, but it turns out they aren't closely related to Yellow Headed Blackbirds.
Species: Agelaius phoeniceus (Red-winged Blackbird)

Yellow Headed Blackbird
There were at least two in the marsh - you could hear one call and then the other. Not that closely related to the Red Winged Black bird - different family.
Species: Xanthocephalus xanthocephalus (Yellow-headed blackbird)

Flock Of Black Tailed Godwit
I was really hurting for light - 1/25th of a second really isn't enough to take a photo of a bird, ignoring that it's through an 800mm lens.
Species: Limosa limosa melanuroides (Asian black-tailed godwit)

Marsh Sandpiper
This bird happened to wander close enough that I got a nice photo of it.

Purple Martin Nest Boxes
I was surprised how willing these birds were to just sit here and hang out. There was a bit of chasing females, but basically everyone was just hanging out.
