Turks and Caicos Islands 13th-27th March 2011 a report by Peter Osborn in .pdf format

Birding the Turks and Caicos Islands January 31, 2003

  • Our totals for TCI included forty-six species with ten additions to our life list. One thing that I have learned about birding small islands, whether its St. Lucia, Hawaii, Provo, or Assateague is that islands tend to limit the number of species you can expect to find. Regardless, Provo, TCI is a beautiful semi-arid subtropical island that I would defiantly return to for the diving alone. The colorful avifauna that we saw was really a treat to our wintered North American eyes...Chris Starling reports
