Far better known as tourism destination, the scattered low-lying islands of The Bahamas hold the standard beach holiday allure of palm trees, coral reefs, endless miles of white sandy beaches and warm blue waters. Our tour targets the handful of endemics, meaning we need only visit a few of the larger islands for Bahama Woodstar, Inagua Woodstar, Bahama Warbler, Bahama Swallow, Bahama Yellowthroat and Bahama Oriole. Given the propensity for restricted island species to attain elevated species status in the future, we shall also search for Bahaman form of Cuban Amazon, Great Lizard Cuckoo and Clapper Rail. Aside from the endemic and near endemic targets, we can also expect to find a number of more widespread Caribbean species including the spectacle of 60 000 American Flamingo, Key West Quail-Dove, Cuban Emerald, La Sagra’s Flycatcher, Bahama Mockingbird, Olive-capped Warbler, Western Spindalis, Greater Antillean Bullfinch, White-tailed Tropicbird and the scarce Kirtland's Warbler on migration.
An attractive destination with excellent standards of accommodation and fairly relaxed birding make this tour the perfect extension to our various Caribbean birding tours.
