Talk on Trinidad. Trinidad is home to a remarkable variety of birds and animals.
Above, the Trinidad Piping Guan, one of perhaps 400 remaining.
It’s one of the many unusual sightings a group of HRAS travelers
saw in Trinidad last April. In the Caroni Swamp, we witnessed the
sunset roosting of thousands of Scarlet Ibis, their color intensified
by the setting sun. Sitting on the veranda of the Asa Wright Nature
Center — sometimes with our cameras, sometimes with a rum
punch — we saw over 10 species of hummingbirds. The beaches
were nesting sights of the endangered Leatherback Turtle. They
were seen and photographed by our group.
