Thanks Glenn and others who took a look at my mystery bird. It is the Black-headed Saltator. Once I had a name it was easier to go back to the books to take a closer look. From the images it was hard to guess the real colors on the back of the bird. We came home with some 25 new brids from just the immediate resort property. Great spot for a field trip!

It looks like a saltator, but I don't know my tropical birds so I can't tell you the exact species.  I don't get out of New England much.

This was a quick glimpse of someone sitting and quickly taking flight  in the woodlands along the mangroves in Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico a couple of weeks back. Am I missing something obvious in identifying this one?
