What a great pleasure watch birds in Cuba with Debi Shearwater, and with such a great group for almost 10 days all over the island. And not only birds …
Another great adventure while birding in Cuba, full of fun and joy, along with my good buddy Jesse Huth, another great guide from Texas.
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.
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.
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…
