Islands in the Sun: Birding in the Caribbean

March 15 @ 6:30 pm

- $5

Ruby Topaz

A Golden Gate Audubon trip to Cuba, a side trip to Hispaniola, and an earlier tour to Trinidad and Tobago provide us with an overview of Caribbean avifauna.  Several endemic families are found here, and some species are quite endangered.  The islands were recently hit by hurricanes Irma and Maria, and there is concern about survival of some species.  Birds Caribbean is working to survey bird populations, provide hummingbird feeders and birdseed where the flowering plants and seed crops were destroyed, and help recovery of Important Bird Areas.
