He wasn't that little as his name suggested. This Little Blue Heron was seen on the airstrip of Kabalebo and it wasn't easy to photograph him as he kept flying away whenever I tried to get closer. In the end he mingled with some Cattle Egrets. However he didn't stay that long, 'cause after a couple of days he left the scenery just like any other migrant bird I've seen.
I spotted this single bird near the river with other sandpipers and egrets. It wasn't shy at all and I was able to approach it very closely. A migrant bird that likes to visit Kabalebo from time to time. This one had its breeding plumage on.
The Bobolink is a migrant bird from the north. At least once per year I see one female eating seeds of the grass. The whole area of Kabalebo is covered with these seeds, but only one Bobolink is present yearly. Not sure if it is the same female. Not a shy bird at all, you can easily approach her till a certain distance but close enough to take good pictures of her. It is possible to miss her sometimes because of her secretive behavior on the ground.
Still visiting Kabalebo: the Green-bellied Hummingbird.
When some birds are ready to mate, their appearance let it know too.
Here are some of the migrant birds we saw over the past few years in Kabalebo.
