Palmchat

The only species in its family, the endemic Palmchat is the national bird of the D. R.  Yes, I was shocked by the size of this twig.  Some of the communal nests I saw were over three feet wide.

I noticed this swift had gotten caught.  I was able to free the bird and a minute later it was up and flying again.
