Huey was glad to finally get his little gnome cap.

Black-crested Titmouse

Baeolophus atricristatus

 

These little birds were a delight to see - very similar, if a bit more cautious, than the ones at home, they were a beautiful addition to our trip. Strangely, this species was originally its own species, then combined with the Tufted Titmouse to be the 'Mexican' race, and then re-split back into its own species (B. atricristatus). Personally, I say keep 'em apart.
