Friday, September 23 is supposed to be the day according to the orbits.
Migration theory varies with who you listen to,
birds donít fly south for the winter, Canadians do. The birds fly North for the summer and I bet you think thatís the same thing :-)
sometimes you look up the exhaust pipe to discover the problem rather than under the hood.
a long story that starts in Amazonia 15 million years ago,
Canadians go home in spring and birds migrate north
very long and not for here.

I have to say that the juncos didnt tell me which way they were headed. I'll have to ask next time...do you guys get north american warblers on the Caye? just askin...


and lol, yes I get the distinction between flying north for the summer...but the amazonian story sounds refreshing...another time another place.

Lots of redstarts, residents and transient warblers.
Ambergris Caye is different than the other cayes in Belize its a caye on the southern half and more of an island on the North.

In all modesty, that's a FAQ for photographers and the standard answer is 'Its not the camera':-)
The camera is a Nikon D-80
