A birding bonanza

We might have been a danger to Cuban drivers because when one of our group spotted something interesting, a shout brought the bus to a quick halt and 14 excited Norte Americanos piled out of the bus, with cameras and binoculars flying from their necks. Typical scenes that caused that excitement.

I hardly knew where to focus the camera, there were so many different species in this shallow lagoon by the side of the road.

I wasn’t quite quick enough to catch the entire reflection of this Black-necked Stilt.
Later in the trip on our way to a lovely resort on the little islet of Cayo Coco (north side of Cuba), we stumbled on a flock of flamingoes foraging in the shallow marshes right next to the road.

Cuba has proved to be a first class birding spot. And there is still more to come!
