Jamaica [2014]

We had planned a 2 week trip to Cuba late February 2014. While making the itinerary it turned out we had some days left and decided to spend these on an extra trip to Jamaica. A Birdwatchers guide to Cuba, Jamaica etc. mentioned that all 29 endemics should be possible to see in just a couple of days so we booked a long weekend from Cuba arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Monday afternoon.

Cuba [2014]

We decided Cuba would be a nice escape of European winter with a good number of endemics, beaches and snorkeling. And of course to experience the unique culture that still exists in present day Cuba; colorful houses and empty roads with a nice selection of ancient cars and horse carts. While making the itinerary it turned out we had some days left and decided to spend these on an extra trip to Jamaica.

Colorado [2012]


While visiting a friend in Colorado Springs Helen had the opportunity to do some birding on the side. Most birding time was spent in Garden of the Gods, a big public park close to Colorado Springs. Highlight there were Prairie Falcon, Canyon Wren and Juniper Titmouse.
And by missing her flight connection in Houston some additional birds were added near the airport.
