Those visitors to the Grenada birds gallery will recall I included two awful photographs of a wonderful bird, the Blue-black Grassquit. And it is here as well, I’m afraid. Unfortunately I haven’t yet had the chance see the ‘bouncing bird’ again. It is a summer breeding resident in Grenada and migrates to South America.
