Author's notes

Two adults (one on left in photo) and one juvenile (on right, you can just see the pale yellow cutting edges on dark beak, and in two photos of single bird). Adults were active in this area in late October-Nov 2018 for three weeks, flying and calling conspicuously. They disappeared until about Jan 20th 2019 when a juvenile and two adults appeared, calling and actively flying for nine days now. The juvenile has a distinctive begging call. However, no direct evidence of nesting has been observed. Records of Dollarbirds at this site in the previous ten years have been sporadic and of single birds.
