Puerto Rican Tody (todus mexicanus)
Join us for us for a 7-day tour to look for all of the endemic birds found in Puerto Rico as well as many West Indian specialties.
we will spend at a quality motel in San
Juan, I will meet participants in the lobby of our motel on the first
morning that we start birding.
Day 1 We will load our van and travel to the southwest side of the Island birding along the way.
We will look for the Plain Pigeon along the way, these have
become more common then in the past which is nice.
We will also search for the Yellow-shouldered Blackbird
which will be later that day. There are only about 700 of these
rare blackbirds left so finding them will be a priority! Our first,
second and third nights will be in Guanica.
Day 2 We will bird the Gaunica State Forest, a dry forest where many endemic species can be found. Here are some of the endemic target birds for this area. We will bird the Rain Forest areas in and around Maricao
located in the mountains. Some of the endemic target species that we will look for are:
- Puerto Rican Flycatcher
- Puerto Rican Vireo
- Puerto Rico Lizard Cuckoo
- Yellow-shouldered Blackbird
- Puerto Rican
- Puerto Rican Bullfinch
- Puerto Rican Nightjar
- Adelaide’s Warbler
- Antillean Mango
