News from Cuba!!!

The first Cuba birding tour went very well, lots of great birding and weather. We were able to locate most of the endemics and near endemics and had excellent views. Highlights included Blue-headed Quail-Dove, Zapata Wren, Stygian Owl, Cuban Grassquit, Giant Kingbird and Zapata Sparrow. We missed Bee Hummingbird. Overall recorded 150+ species and visited areas in La Guira, Zapata, La Belen and Cayo Cocco. Onto my next tour, Feb.19-Mar.1!
