2014-02-13 Campo Verde, Manzanillo, Colima (Col), Mexico
Adult intermediate with the dark brown head and throat, and reddish belly. Has started to winter in Colima area though in small numbers. The picture has been heavily cropped, hence the bad quality.
2015-11-07 Presa Huaxtla, west of Gdl, Jalisco (Jal), Mexico
Adult light morph. The dark head, the long wings with black remiges and beige coverts plus bright tail is diagnostic. Most birds have left Mexico now, but a few stay during the winter, or move on later. My first in Jalisco.
