The CBT takes on Grenada

The CBT takes on Grenada

Summer Tanager

The Caribbean Birding Trail project team is taking on its third and final island for the year…Grenada! Having arrived just yesterday we wasted no time hitting the trail and spotted a number of birds, including the endemic and endangered Grenada Dove, and a suite of rare/ vagrant shorebirds for Grenada at Woburn Mangrove (White-rumped Sandpiper, Stilt Sandpiper, Solitary Sandpiper), then a Summer Tanager.

What a way to kick off this trip! We are here to continue building the foundation of the Caribbean Birding Trail, a project that is exploring Caribbean heritage, patrimony, through the eyes of birds. We find birds, specifically endemic birds, to be ideal symbols of island heritage, for they evolved here and exist nowhere else.

If you want to keep up with us on our trip in real time, check out this new crowdmapping tool we are developing to aggregate observations in the Caribbean. We are interested in observations of all kinds from bird and wildlife sightings to potential threats and human activity as well.

We are also actively posting on Facebook, so check us out there as well.

What a wonderful project! I enjoyed seeing the various birds and wildlife during my visits to the Caribbean. Hopefully I will have more visit in the future. BTW, I came across this blog while hopping thru the Nature Blog Network.
