St. Lucia May 8-15 2011

Craig and I travelled to St. Lucia in May for a combined vacation getaway, visiting friends and birding. We hired Adams Toussaint of the Forestry Service to guide us for 2 days of birding. We found him on the Birding St. Lucia website. http://birdinginstlucia.org/ In 2 days he was able to find us all the endemic species and most of the other Lesser Antillean and Caribbean specialties to be had. Our only major miss was Rufous Nightjar. Photography was done on the fly in less than ideal conditions. I have included some poor quality photos of special species and memories.
