The Birds Glow in South America


https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/glow/

Here at Villa Migelita Ecolodge  we have so many birds it is hard to feature all of them. Colombia is the second most bio-diverse country in the world! At Villa Migelita Ecolodge we now have scientists coming to classify my birds and catalog them for my area of Valle del Cauca, Colombia. I would love to say these photos are mine but they are not, they are from the scientists that visit. So if you are a birder and haven’t visited Colombia, you should! These photos I am displaying were taken at my Villa by those trained in Ornithology. 

They all glow. The cover photo is a Roadside Hawk (Rupornis magnirostris), there are many sub-species. They just call this one Un halcón de carretera azul, which means the blue falcon.

 Pionus chalcopterus
Hummingbirds (3)
Very difficult to distinguish the Emerald Hummingbirds but I think this is a black winged Emerald male juvenile.

These are just a few of the many birds photographed at Villa Miglelita Ecolodge.

I am an American who moved to Colombia to find peace after the devastating loss of my daughter. I bought and renovated a Villa, am learning Spanish, and writing as catharsis. This blog will be like my book with chapters. Each blog will be about my life and adventures. I hope you will enjoy the many new discoveries I am making every day about myself and another culture.
