CARIBBEAN ENDEMIC AMAZONS
CARRIBEAN ENDEMIC AMAZONS
The beautiful Caribbean islands are magnet for numerous people with their fine sandy beaches and turquoise blue sea waters.
But there are some hidden treasures on these islands known to a much fewer people - the very beautiful Amazon parrots.
Nowadays there are 9 species of endemic amazons inhabiting 8 of the islands, and one of them - the Cuban amazon has 2 distinct subspecies on nearby smaller islands. Our tour will be focused on these beautiful and endangered birds and we shall see them in their native habitat and enjoy their behavior and beauty.
We will also visit the conservation projects on most of the islands.
There will be the possibility to see the 2 endemic parakeets, plus a number of introduced other parrot species.
For each of the amazon species we will have 2 full days and the islands we will visit have in total 100 + other endemic bird species and we shall see most of them.
Sadly, once upon there were more amazons species to live on the Caribbean and at least 2, possibly 4, species of macaws.
They are long gone now, due to persecution and habitat destruction.
Beside the observation of the amazons in the wild, and the other birds, we will have some lectures about the extinct species and more importantly on the conservation issues and the efforts to protect and save the existing amazons. Their biology, ecology, history, survival and conservation will be discussed.
We shall start from the south end of the Caribbean, from St. Vincent, making our way up and ending in Cuba.
