More Caybirds

COMMON GROUND DOVE, Columbina passerina as its name suggests, a common bird on Grand Cayman and at 6.5 inches long it is easily overlooked creeping around the undergrowth, unlike these two sitting on a shed roof.
LOGGERHEAD KINGBIRD, Tyrannus caudifasciatus. Known as Tom Fighter locally, due to its aggressive behaviour during the breeding season. One of the tyrant flycatchers, 9.5 inches

SMOOTH-BILLED ANI, Crotophaga ani. Another common species, known to the locals as Old Arnold or Black Arnold for whatever reason. Often reported as a black parrot because of its horny beak and long tail. Found from South and Central America, through the Caribbean and into North America
