> What an interesting specimen.......Appears to be too small for a Purple by almost 1 inch on average, assuming that the bird is about 7 inches based on the ruler in the photos. Plumage appears inconsistent as well. Could it be a Caribbean? White underparts with undertail coverts that extend to the central retrices? Doesn't appear to be Brown-chested or Southern Martin. I suppose Gray-breasted or Cuban might also be possibilities?
