On the 3rd year of participating at Big Year, we will explore bird life on 3 different continents. We hope that birds will be cooperative, and that we all will enjoy in future days, weeks and months.

I like these because a lot have descriptive names. Names such as 'Snowcap' for a bird with a white cap, "Spot-breasted Wren" for a small bird with spots on its breast and of course Spotted Sandpiper for a Sandpiper with spots.

Makes it so much easier for us to agree than an allegedly "Social" flycatcher being anything but sociable.

Keep em coming. 600 is but a small step although you are running out of alphabet.

I will. Luckily there are quite many "Yellow" and "White" birds :D!

Pinkish-brown bill is signature of Streak-headed Woodcreeper. Below is a better photo but the bird lacks the pinkish bill. Still I think is the same specie.
