MALE CARIBBEAN MARTIN, STOP BETWEEN TOBAGO AIRPORT & BLUE WATERS INN, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

   We can ID this swallow as a male Caribbean Martin by its forked tail and appearing black at a distance  (close-up it is glossy blue black) with conspicuously contrasting white lower underparts from mid-breast to vent.  
   The Caribbean Martin is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 581.
