Sadly both of these White-tailed deer had somehow injured their rear legs. The doe was hobbling fairly badly.

The white-tailed deer is tan or brown in the summer and grayish brown in winter. It has white on its throat, around its eyes and nose, on its stomach and on the underside of its tail. The male has antlers. Males weigh between 150 and 300 pounds and females weigh between 90 and 200 pounds.

Taken at the Bay View Hotel, Bar Harbor.

Hypopyrrhus pyrohypogaster
(Red-bellied Grackle / Cacique candela)

La Ceja, Colombia; 2.300 meters above sea level.

The red-bellied grackle is endemic to Colombia where it is found in all three Andean ranges at altitudes of 800 to 2,400m (2,600 to 7,900ft) above sea level.

Its natural habitat is tropical forest, but the trees are increasingly being felled for timber and to make way for agriculture, and little virgin forest remains within its range.

H. pyrohypogaster was formerly classified as "endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature but in 2012 the threat level was lowered to "vulnerable". This is on the basis that, although its forest habitat remains under pressure, it has been found at some new locations where it was not known before. The total population is now estimated to be in the range 2,500 to 9,999 individuals.

La Ceja, Colombia; 2.300 meters above sea level.

He looks quite like a female, but he is a juvenile male. The key is the head: It already shows small black patches. All the very young heineis, male and female, look like females as their mothers.

Juvenile males show a kaleidoscope of colours: Yellow-green as the females and blue tones as adult males.

Black-capped Tanagers are vividly-colored tropical birds that occur in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru. They often occur in pairs foraging in bushes and trees for insects and fruit.

It is one of the few species in the genus that shows obvious sexual dichromatism, with males primarily gray-blue in color with a distinctive black cap, and females yellow-green without a black cap.

Hepatic Tanagers (Piranga flava) are medium-sized, sexually dimorphic songbirds with a dark bill. Males are red with dull red on the wings and back. Females are yellow-gray above and brighter yellowish below, with a bit gray on the face.

Formerly placed in the tanager family (Thraupidae), Hepatic tanagers and other members of its genus are now classified in the cardinal family (Cardinalidae). The common name hepatic means "liver-coloured", namely, brownish-red.

There are three subspecies groups, which may be separate species:

1) Hepatica group.
2) Flava group.
3) Lute group: resident from Costa Rica to northern and western South America in highland forest edges (As the one in the photo)
