Home Birds Listing Sample Photographs Birding Spots Bird Watching Tropical Animals Scenes Cd Features Purchase CD Links News

The diversity of bird life that is so easily found in Trinidad and Tobago ensures that bird watching is a rewarding pastime. In addition to the many resident tropical birds, these two Caribbean islands receive numerous winter migrant birds from North America, Europe and the Arctic regions plus South American migrant birds from the austral winter.

Below is a listing of the 332 bird species that will be found in Discovering the Birds of Trinidad and Tobago. You can view samples of the bird photographs and descriptions from the bird identification guide by clicking on the links. The Sample Bird Photographs page also provides direct links to the bird images.
