One day on the playa....


West Mexican Chachalaca

Mexican Tanager

There are about 7 crocodiles living in a small river
that empties into Zihuatanejo's bay.

This bird has to be a Green Heron...

Three Sandpipers...

Mexican Grackle
Probably my favorite to watch since they
are so intelligent and gregarious. 

Minimalist photo of the day...
It was only 3:30pm...but seemed
later as the weather was so dark.


  1. You're having a great time and that's all that counts.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

  2. What is it about black birds, in all areas of the world, being so smart?

    It looks like you are having a wonderful time!

  3. I was surprised by the crocs, I hadn't considered they'd be in Mexico. The Chachalaca is a new bird to me too. You're giving me an education ;-)

  4. Hope you caught that crocodile with a telephoto lens.

  5. I guess it isn't a good idea to swim in that river, unless you have a thing for crocodiles.
