This week’s photo, taken October 5, 2017 at the Puerto Ayora fish market on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, Ecuador, features 4 BROWN PELICANS patiently waiting for some scraps of fish to be tossed their way. They didn’t have to wait long.

    I have been to that same fish cleaning station. I didn’t take a photo tho.
    Just returned from a trip to Mexico City, Morelia, Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende, and Queretaro. Not a birding trip, however I did score a few birds: House Sparrows everywhere, Turkey Vultures ditto, but also Avocets by the hundreds, Great Egrets, Bushtits, a couple of calling Cassin’s Kingbirds, Vermillion Flycatcher twice in different places, and a Cactus Wren at the pyramids outside Mexico DF. A hummingbird seen in silhouette only. Some sort of blackbird smaller than a crow.

    Joe, Saw our first painted bunting of the season, a female in our back yard. The male shouldn’t be far behind.
