Trinidad and Tobago Day 3: Part 2, The Birds


(Female Green Honeycreeper above; juvenile Purple Honeycreeper below)

Time for the bird photographs now. Okay, so these are all the same species as the past three days (other than the antshrike), but I got some that I really like, and hence, here they are.
