- Comments: "Electric blue unmistakable, had a clear view for a few moments while it perched.
Note Peter-Paul: when I noticed this bird, which I immediately realized was a BB grassquit, I warned my fellow birders who were standing beside me and then was able to take just one picture when the bird flew up. It flew over the small pond and perched for a few seconds in the bushes beside the pond where all four of us could see it fairly well; but after a few seconds it flew over the ‘dike’ to the west and was out of sight. Probably only the second record of this species for Bonaire."

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. Tern-like in shape and size, appearing long-winged and lighter in color under the wings. 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."
