Boat-billed Flycatcher

Boat-billed Flycatcher nestlings, Copan Ruins, Honduras

Going back to Honduras for today’s pic. Alex Alvarado of Birds Honduras found this nest of Boat-billed Flycatchers on the grounds of Copan Ruins. He spotted one of the parents and then saw it go to the nest. The nestlings are pretty well grown. I imagine that they fledged soon after we saw them. In this shot they were actively awaiting mom or dad’s arrival with fresh food, and we did see the adult feeding them while we watched. Sony RX10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/500th @ f4 @ ISO 800. Processed in Polarr.
