Mystery bird w/ digicam

Up near the top of Pyramid IV, where the Orange-breasted Falcon (see previous photo) seems to be nesting, this archeologist is videotaping a bird perched on the scaffold. Although our birding guide suggested that the bird might be an O-b Falcon, another expert has pointed out that it is much too small. It could be a Bat Falcon, which is also known to nest on top of this pyramid in some years.
