I'm guessing this guy is a 1 year old. Hi beak is certainly like the Boat Billed guys. He was on top of my palapa at Birdland and I had my video camera in my hand. This is a grabbed frame from that. He stood and watched me for several minutes but when the dogs started barking he flew off - very clumsy flight into the brush.

That answer makes me happy. Do I have to wait for more adult plumage to tell if it is a Black-Crowned or Yellow-Crowned one?

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

AZBOB, They look this way when their young and change when they get mature, like us with black hair or hair period.
