OK, I will test your patience with some scans of some old, marginal 35 mm slides. @gcwarbler had retained many boxes of some of my culled slides from 20-30 years ago. I have enough to keep me busy for many weeks at least with scanning, etc. (thanks Chuck….I think!). These will all be of records I had not posted to iNat previously. Sorry for the poor quality of most of these but they are all I have. This is the first installment of many to come.
The Coraciiformes are a group of usually colorful near passerine birds including the kingfishers, the Hoopoe, the bee-eaters, the rollers, and the hornbills. They generally have syndactyly, with three forward-pointing toes (and toes 3 & 4 fused at their base), though in many kingfishers one of these is missing.
