LESSER ANTILLEAN BULLFINCH
Great name! Red on throat, bottom and between beak and eye. Female not so colorful.
Bird I saw most on St. Kitts! Like the black mask. Sociable, boisterous, not so skittish.
Very similar to the Mourning Dove seen at home. Can see my reflection in the Dove's eye in 2nd shot!
Saw these all over the island. Orange streaks. Big feet! Saw a Yellow-Crowned Night Heron one time.
Recognized from coastal South Carolina. Cool mask and yellow bill.
Took these between Rum Punch sips at one of the beachfront bars on "The Strip".
GOATSCame upon this herd while driving along the nothern part of St. Kitts on the Atlantic Ocean side.
Bathtime in the Atlantic near the Marriott Resort...but not for everyone!
Had this up close enounter right outside our villa door.
RED REEF HERMIT CRABThere's a garden along one of the Marriott Resort's perimeter walls that is home to these colorful crabs.
The Marriott Resort is home to lots of "wild" cats. They keep their distance but will gladly accept any handouts.
I definitely recommend St. Kitts as a vacation- and birding- destination!
