Black Catbird / Maullador Negro

Melanoptila glabrirostris


I was going to erase these photos because they weren't very good when I realized the bird had a ring in its leg. I posted the photos in a group of Birds of Mexico and a Biologist told me the ID and that he had been placing rings to this kind of bird two years before in for his Master degree. This Black Catbird may be one of them.


Deciduous forest of the Yucatan peninsula.
