TRINIDAD TOBAGO


THE PHOTOGRAPHS IN THIS ALBUM WERE MADE ON A BIRD TRIP TO TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO IN NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2008.
MOTMOT TRAVEL (WE MET THEM AT THE DUTCH ANNUAL BIRD FAIR IN AUGUST 2008) ORGANIZED THE ACCOMMODATION.
OUR FIRST WEEK WE SPENT ON TRINIDAD IN THE ASA WRIGHT NATURE CENTRE. BEING THE PLACE FOR ALMOST EVERY BIRDWATCHER GOING TO TRINIDAD.
THE TERRAIN OF THE CENTRE INHABITS A LOT OF SPECIES, INCLUDING THE OILBIRD AND BEARDED BELLBIRD.
FROM THE AWC WE MADE SEVERAL TRIPS, MOSTLY WITH DAVID RAMLAL, AN EXCELLENT GUIDE AND NICE FELLOW.
WE SPENT OUR SECOND WEEK ON TOBAGO, AN ISLAND MUCH SMALLER THAN TRINIDAD.
FROM THE BLUE WATERS INN IN SPEYSIDE WE MADE SEVERAL TRIPS WITH THE NUMBER ONE BIRDGUIDE OF TOBAGO, NEWTON GEORGE.
ONE OF THE TRIPS WAS SAILING TO LITTLE TOBAGO WERE WE SAW THE RED-BILLED TROPICBIRD.
THE LAST STAY WAS IN THE CUFFIE RIVER NATURE RETREAT, IN THE FOREST AGAIN.
