Oropendola by mydigitalmind Oropendola by mydigitalmind
It was tough to get good photos of the Montezuma Oropendolas because lighting was horrible everyday that I saw them. Thankfully, they showed up at the lodge we were staying at so I could keep trying.

For videos of this unique bird's call please visit my Flickr account [link] and [link]
