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.
This is just the extension of our previous ornithological study in Cuba thru the month of December with Paul Bannick, here we continued our adventure through the rest of the island.
We spend a whole week birding in Cuba taking photos of owls and woodpeckers, our main focus was on the Cuban Pygmy-Owl (Glaucidium siju) and Cuban Green Woodpecker (Xiphidiopicus percussus) although we took a lot of species.
The first time we visit the northern keys after the Hurricane Irma, to do our ornithological study, a lot of devastation and birds impact on the Keys, especially on Cayo Paredón and Cayo Romano, after a few hours walking and driving, we didn’t see anything of the local bird residents of the keys, as Thick-billed Vireo, Bahama Mockingbird, Cuban Gnatcatcher, not even Cuban Bullfinch or Western Spindalis etc…
As usual, we had a great time full of joy, entertainment, and birds, while we survey the island. Only that this time we encounter ourself with a few nice birds like; Eastern Kingbird, Eastern Wood-Pewee, and many others, we manage to explore the island right after the hurricane and conduct our Cuba Ornithological Survey with no problem or whatsoever.
What we had was a terrific time full of joy and entertainment, we manage to explore the island right after the hurricane, and conduct our Cuba Ornithological Study with no problem or whatsoever.
On this Ornithological Birding Study in Cuba, everything went very smooth, I really like it when it goes like this, as usual, the company is great
