I saw this tagged Ruddy Turnstone:
Turnstone with leg band.
by Laura Robinson
As you can see in
the photo (I hope) it has 2 other small bands on each ankle,
1 is orange and the other seems yellow or cream colored. I have
seen lots of others, but nothing out of the ordinary.
I can't believe how many flamingos are on the flats! I have
been here the last couple of winters and have never seen so
many in one spot! Wow!
This morning I also saw a Ruby-topaz Hummingbird just down EEG
in a vacant lot. Yeah!
Thank you for sending along this data. I will contact you privately
for the specifics and forward it along.
Good (Bonaire) Birding,
Thanks for your response.
Can you tell me what this bird is? It has an orange head, yellow
front, and blue on the lower wings. Is this a Brown-fronted?
It doesn't look anything like any of the photos I have. Thanks.

Hi, Laura. This is the Bonaire subspecies of the Caribbean (Brown-throated)
Parakeet. Thanks for sending it along!
