Kevin Easily Report from Caribean, Gray Kingbird and Brown Noddy, 10-18-2008

Just in from a 2 night trip to the Caribbean with my parents, Steven and Magda. Migrants were Puerto Viejo de Limon while passing through town I noticed what I thought was a Brown Noddy at shores edge - got out and sure was quite tame, seemed to be in fine condition. It was on the other side of the basketball court at the edge of sea...didn't expect that.

This morning while birding a side road just inland and between the 2 entrances to Cahuita NP...(opposite side of the road - biggest dirt road, go over the first hill then down to the first bridge crossing) I thought a particular Kingbird looked a bit odd - oddly enough it was a very nice adult Gray Kingbird - watched it for about an hour, sometimes at close range in good light - didn't expect that either.

Had about 100 Mississippi Kites this morning, Veery, Gray-cheeked Thrush, Mourning Warbler, Canada Warbler...numbers were not real high however with Eastern Wood Pewee topping the charts!
