All five exhibited a chocolate-brown head and forecrown. The wings and tail were a blue-ish gloss. The chin, throat, breast, and sides were grayish brown. The lower breast, belly, and undertail coverts were pure white. The bill was black, and the iris was brown.

According to eBird, Caribbean Martins are often seen "on exposed perches including power and telephone lines in villages." In this observation, the five Caribbean Martins observed were perched on utility cables in the small town of Hato."

I waited for some time for it to return, but it did not. I did, however, hear it vocalizing in the nearby foliage."

Chivi Vireo (Vireo chivi) (1)
- Reported Jan 22, 2022 08:55 by Susan Davis
- Washington Slagbaai NP--Pos Mangel, Bonaire
- Comments: "I believe this to be a Chivi Vireo. It was observed in the exact location as a prior confirmed sighting on January 7, 2022. This bird visited the pos (watering hole) twice, both times in the company of at least one Black-whiskered Vireo. It did not vocalize as it was busy drinking. I am basing this identification upon the length of the primary feathers. It appears to me that the outermost primary feather is shorter than the fifth or sixth, which would indicate a Chivi Vireo versus the similar Red-eyed Vireo. I am very open to assistance from those with more experience."

I did see two swallow-like birds, both larger than Bank Swallows, in-flight and feeding. I was able to clearly discern the darker upper parts and the lighter underparts, and the distinct dark band across the chest. Since the birds were in motion, I couldn't discern if there were any additional markings coming down the breast from the band. Unfortunately, they took off before I could grab an image."

It was dark in color, with head and wings appearing blackish, with white speckling on the wings and the white leading edge to the wings visible while seated.

It spent most of the time on the ground in amongst rocks but would fly a short distance when approached (c10m) and then sit again. At first, I thought it had a problem with one of its wings, but we were unable to catch it and it was able to fly short distances. Photo included."

- Comments: "This bird was seen in a mixed shorebird grouping, including 12 Short-billed Dowitchers which were in rough pairings of two. This one was more on its own, and when it flew deeper into the salina, I heard a "keeeee" call. Before it flew deeper into the salina, it walked past two of the Short-billed Dowitchers, and it might have appeared that the bill was slightly longer, but I am not sure. Salina di Vliet is currently filled with rainwater."
