St Lucia 10th-18th December 2013

  • It was not a good time of year to visit St Lucia from a birding point of view. It is at the end of the wet season and just before the main breeding season which is roughly Jan – April and forest birds were not singing at all (apart from the warbler). Also the Caribbean Martin and Black Swift are not present. However we were prepared to sacrifice a few ticks in order to get away in December!..Peter and Rosemary Royle report.

St Lucia 22nd Nov– 2nd Dec 2012

  • This trip was intended to see the St Lucia endemics, Lesser Antillean regional endemics and relaxing on the beach...John Kirby reports.

St Lucia, October 23rd to November 6th 2005

  • My birdwatching took place generally from 06:00 (which was dawn) to about 08:15 each morning and occassionally in the late afternoon. The area I covered was the half mile between the Halcyon Beach and the St James Club Hotel....Chris Grimshaw reports

St Lucia & St Vincent, June 2005

  • From a birding point of view St Lucia is a relatively easy island to work being 28 miles long & 14 miles wide and is probably the most important of the Lesser Antilles as it holds either 5 or 6 single island endemics...Mike Powell reports

Bird Watching in Saint Lucia, West Indies. 2002

  • At our final over look we were treated to our "Holy Grail" at last, three St. Lucia Parrots what a treat!  Leo exclaimed that we were indeed lucky to see Jacquot. As most of the island locals go their whole lives with out seeing one.... Along the way we heard many more Parrots in the Mahogany trees.   We arrived at the parking lot and were given views of two new birds Brown Trembler, and the very endangered St. Lucia Black Finch....Christopher Starling reports.

St.Lucia March 23-26th 2001

  • Our first lifer for the island was seen around the airport, and this was Carib Grackle. En route to the hotel we stopped briefly along the road when we saw a raptor fly over. It was a Broad-winged Hawk. Nearby, we added the St. Lucia subspecies of Bananaquit, and Adelaide's Warbler, a potential split from the one that occurs on Puerto Rico. We had a little look around near the hotel, adding Streaked Saltator, Tropical Mockingbird and Scaly-breasted Thrasher......Alex Kirschel reports
