    Debby, love your stunning work! I noticed that the slaty tailed has it’s head sidewards. In Belize this year we photographed a bird doing the same posture. Some raptor flying over?

    Jurgen, thanks! As a matter of fact, the slaty tailed was alarmed (possibly by me), raising and lowering its tail repeatedly, which is something you don’t usually see.There might have been a raptor around as it was pretty excited. I’d love to see your photo. Thanks for the kind comment!
