Birding at Uxmal!

Today I made my way to Uxmal for work and of course took the chance to do some birding and get some shots. February is peek birding season here in the Yucatan since the migrations from the North are at their height. I spoted The Yucatan Woodpecker (Melanerpes pygmaeus), The Orange Oriole (Icterus auratus) and several "Pajaros Tho" or "Mot mot" (Eumomota superciliosa) as well as one other species of Woodpecker and several little swallows. There also were a huge amount of iguanas out enjoying the sun and warming up their cold blood! Hope you enjoy the photos!
