Smooth Billed Ani (Crotophaga ani)

  1. Is it overly wet or overly hot for you? Posted 3 months ago
    1. A bit of both actually...here it's supposed to be transitioning from dry to wet season which was usually always a windy and sunny time with occasional rain drizzles and cool nights however right now there is heavy non-stop downpour and a very high humidity at night. The level of rainfall we are having right now is equal to what we got in November(rainiest month in Trinidad) years ago.

      How is the current weather in your country?

      1. Heavy rain makes it hard to photograph. I kind of enjoyed such experiences in our travels, but it's of course an entirely different thing from permanently living in it.

        We've had an exceptionally cold spring, which really sucks because over here autumn and winter are relatively cold and have little daylight, so the entire country welcomes spring. But spring has been cold, so it's been a combined 9 month wait for any serious sun shine or comfortable weather. Luckily, the weather improved since last week, so it's sunny and pretty hot now.
