Presented by Aiken Audubon Society at Colorado Division of Wildlife

Cuba is the largest island in the West Indies. Its natural beauty and high level of endemism attract naturalists from all over the world.

John Drummond  was part of a group that visited Cuba in April, 2016. Cuba contains a wide variety of habitats-tropical forests, palm savanna, mangroves, coastal wetlands, and coral islands-all of which support 27 endemic birds, a further 22 West Indian endemics, plus a large number of North American wintering migrants.

John’s presentation illustrates his search for these endemic birds, including the national bird of Cuba, the Cuban Trogon, and the world’s smallest bird, the Bee Hummingbird. Along the way we’ll enjoy some photos of the old world culture that still exists on this isolated island.
