Birding the Caribbean: Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Martinique

Steve Shunk, our associate editor, is headed to the Caribbean in a few days. Birding may not be the first thing people think of when planning a trip to the Caribbean, but Steve thinks these tropical islands give many reasons to change that perception.

Steve will be attending the 20th International Meeting of BirdsCaribbean, which is being held in New Kingston, Jamaica from 25-29 July 2015. The theme is Birds—Connecting Communities and Conservation. Stay tuned for updates and reports from the field.

To whet your appetite for birding the Caribbean, check out Steve’s Flickr site, where you can find dozens of great scenic and bird photos (please excuse the ads on Flickr-apparently these show when users are not logged in).
