avian mystery

Who can help me identify this most amazing bird?  I had a most birdful morning yesterday and am hoping to do an entire post, but meanwhile - wow.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti
Who can help me identify him?
 Here is another one who might be his mate, but I'm just guessing.

possibly the mate to the bird above?

    I'm on it! I have a friend who runs a professional birding company. I'll have an answer in no-time.

  2. A beautiful yellow bird perches and sings on the tree next to our second floor balcony. My curiosity had me do a search on the Internet...yellow bird Haiti. The only thing that came up was "Ti Zwazo", a folk song. While walking around the community, I spied a tree full of round bird nests, round like a ball. These ball nests were inhabited by beautiful yellow birds, an entire community in one tree on a busy trail in Bondeau.

  3. Wow! I have no idea, but those are some amazing birds. I'll ask my husband if he knows.
