Black-headed Gulls were bountiful on the shores of this Caribbean island. Using some treats, I attracted some to my hotel room terrace and soon one gull turned into several. They raised quite a ruckus with their shrills and shreiks. I have a video clip of the ruckus on a YouTube video I just produced about our trip (it's at the very end).It can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izSlqjqifCE
Probably the island's most common bird is the Pearly-eyed Thrasher. They have a vibrant and endearing song and always seemed busy, busy. We'd see them around the resort and everywhere else on the island.
I see lots of herons back home but not with the coloring of the one spotted a few times in a marsh at the Westin resort where we stayed. My friend Suzanne helped confirm that this is a Little Blue Heron in the process of changing from white to blue.
