  3. Only 2 species left and JD will have the whole becard set! Anybody going to Jamaica or Suriname soon? Posted 11 days ago, modified 11 days ago
    1. We also quietly passed by 4,500 bird species recently! Posted 11 days ago
      1. Awesome! Posted 10 days ago
  4. Excellent, Thibaud! I guess I've seen that, but I don't think I have a photo. Posted 11 days ago
    1. Well Suriname is not at the top of my list, but just the other day a friend and I were talking about how flights from Lima to Kingston are actually quite cheap... Posted 11 days ago
      1. Yeah, I wish I had even a bit of desire to go to Jamaica. The special birds there aren't enough of a draw to deal with that. I'd rather travel some place with a large number of birds than a few specialties. Posted 11 days ago
        1. Fair enough, that's pretty much the main reason I'm in no hurry to visit the Galapagos. But Jamaica has an endemic owl and three endemic hummers (though I only really care about the streamertails haha), and those are my favorite bird families, so I'll make my way there eventually!

          1. OK, the streamertails might be worth it. If I can avoid the tourists!

            I'm just happiest standing in buggy, hot, humid forests!

            1. Urk, tell me about it!
              Good thing the crowds prefer the beaches to the buggy forests haha

The chestnut-crowned becard is a species of bird in the family Tityridae. It has traditionally been placed in Cotingidae or Tyrannidae, but evidence strongly suggest it is better placed in Tityridae, where it is now placed by the South American Classification Committee.
