Re: Herps in the Home

I am an American ex-pat with a Mexican wife. I do photography (mostly weddings and surf, some commercial) and website design. My wife is the GM of a boutique hotel. We do worry about the cats but they seem to have a handle on things, though they get pinched by the crabs sometimes. I actually forgot ...

Re: Herps in the Home

Here is a thread I can definitely contribute to. I live in Southern Mexico in a semi-jungle habitat. Our house has a certain "open air quality" to it, though it is screened. Somehow a pretty wide menagerie of animals manages to get inside. Often the amusement or dismay of my two indoor only cats. He...

Re: Canon mid-level DSLR

I just picked up the new Canon 70D. Only had it about a week so far but I think it is an excellent camera. It has a lot of features that have really set the bar on Prosumer level DSLR's.

Re: Who wants to help me ID shore birds?

Very helpful Andy. The reason I thought the front two birds in #2 are different is the very different nostril area. One has a deep groove, the other no. After reviewing the photos from yesterday, I realize I have yet another tern species. Very different head pattern. http://i306.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: Who wants to help me ID shore birds?

#4 is a decent size bird. Smaller then a willet.

The sanderlings are tiny.

I lean towards elegant on the tern, but obviously I don't know for sure.

Thanks! Anybody else? Pete? Chris?

Re: Sea Turtle tracks identification

I think Hawksbill is a real possibility. I didn't give them much thought because it is not a turtle we see here. But after googling their track I see a couple of images close enough to make think probably. Thanks all

Sea Turtle tracks identification

In the mornings when I walk the beach I enjoy seeing the tracks of the turtles that have nested the previous night. Pretty much they are all the same, Olive Ridley's. Our most common turtle. This morning I came across 3 sets of different tracks. These are much narrower, 2 ft or less, they have a dif...

Interesting Great Blue Heron behavior

While I did find other examples of this online, I have never seen this before and thought I would share. It is definitely sunning, apparently parabolicly. It stayed this way over 15 minutes, adjusting to the suns angle.
