Because of the busyness of the holidays, this installment of the Machu Picchu and Galapagos adventure has been delayed, but I don’t want to leave it out. Some of you birdwatchers out there will find the feathered species inhabiting the islands quite interesting. Keep in mind that most of these are unique to the Galapagos as they have morphed from their original form.
and the vermilion flycatcher. The flycatcher is said to be present only on Rabida and is very hard to spot. It was also very hard to get it or the warbler photographed as both were constantly in motion.
A favorite was the oystercatcher with its long legs and vivid beak. The hubby was lucky enough to spot this one shifting on its nest, and he captured not only the bird but the egg.
There are a number of other birds in residence on the islands, and for a person who is really into birds, a journey there would be amazing. Spotting them can sometimes be as much of a challenge as getting the perfect photo!
There is still a bit more to share about the Galapagos Islands, and I hope you will come back another day to continue the journey.
