Birding Cuba On the words of Fred “What an amazing trip and what a truly amazing guide!” what a trip!! thanks to all of you for that.
Facts about the Bee Hummingbird The smallest bird in the hole World Wing beats about 200 times per minute it only weighs 1.8 grams!
A frog is any member of a diverse and largely carnivorous group of short-bodied, tailless amphibians composing the order Anura.
Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes. Like all squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Cuba counts with 38 species of snakes.
And we finally saw the flamingos 😃😃😃, so they are coming back slowly but surely, after our last hurricane this last October. We saw only five at Cayo Guillermo, but hundreds on the causeway, which means that they are recovering as well the habitat.
This is one of those tours that you really enjoy, where joy and happiness reign, everyone gets along and the birds simply appear for themselves without putting too much effort.
As part of our Cuba Bird Survey hosted by Partnership for International Birding and Naturalist Journeys, we found 4 Piping Plover, one of those banded, who apparently was banded as a chick at Malbay South, New Brunswick Canada on July 12, 2017.
Slowly but surely they are coming back from our last hurricane. These are from our last Cuba Bird Survey, where we got them both, the Bahama Mockingbird and Thick-billed Vireo. Plus many many others along the way.
Once more we have completed another very successful trip to Cuba. Hope you all enjoyed. And keep the good work birding all over the world.
Cuba Ornithological Study We just completed another amazing tour, full of birds and joy. We had a little bit of a bad weather on the northern keys.
