Warm, blue waters . . . beaches of white sand . . . palm trees . . . Just six miles off the coast of South America, with a lush, tropical climate, the twin island country of Trinidad & Tobago (T & T) boasts the greatest avian diversity of any island country in the Caribbean. The continental influence has endowed T & T with well over 400 species of birds, and during this 10-day tour we will find our share of them, including such species as Blue-gray Tanager, Red-breasted Blackbird, and Blue-crowned Motmot. On Trinidad we will spend three nights at Asa Wright, the famous birding lodge where Chestnut-colored Woodpeckers, Whitebearded Manakins, and the fascinating Oilbird may be found. Other stops will include the Nariva Swamp for waders and the Caroni Bird Sanctuary for the unforgettable Scarlet Ibis. On a beach on the north coast, we’ll also we see the massive Leatherback Sea Turtle as it comes up to the beach to lay their eggs at night. After six nights on Trinidad we’ll change the pace and travel to Tobago, known for its truly Caribbean, laid-back vibe. This tiny island makes up roughly 5% of T & T’s area, and is only 116 square miles. We’ll bird the hills and the coast of this lovely little island then have time in the afternoon to swim, snorkel, or just
relax on the beach.
