Yes , this is how the day began on the farm.
I took the morning off and decided to walk on the farm... on the meadow, where this picture was taken and ended in the coffee farm.
Nice flocks and when I was staring at a nice American Redstart (of course my best picture is without the head...)
The Violaceous Trogon (or new name ..Gartered Trogon) male flew buy and landed in front of my nose...
I took a movie
On the video you will see that he start to "sing" because behind me the lady flew in and around.
Directly the male took of and flew very gracious to the tree with the Wasp nest:
In this tree (arrow)
I did check out the tree when they flew off, I cannot see if there is already a nest or a start of making a nest... will keep an eye on it...fingers crossed.
The bird list of this morning... see down below.
