The last week of April brought me to the Caribbean Island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Specifically the Cable Beach area of Nassau. While this was not a birding trip & without a car, I did manage to see a few species on foot. Notable was the Bahama Woodstar, of which an individual was seen in Pennsylvania just a few days before my trip. Unfortunately I did not see that bird, but was able to see a few while on vacation.
Other birds seen were Red-Legged Thrush, Black-faced Grassquit, Cuban Grassquit, Banaquit, and Ruddy Turnstones. Doves were represented by the Eurasian-Collared, Mourning, and Ground species. I saw a Northen Parula, American Redstart and Green Heron.
So that brings us to May, the most-exciting month for birds in the northeastern US !!
