I started out this BVI listing thread but since I think ticks are going to be slowgoing I thought it would be better as a patch diary.
Today I ascended the highest peak in the BVI into the only untouched forest on the island in the hope of spotting some warblers. No such luck and the only new thing I saw was something I'd rather not have seen - an introduced striped mongoose; these little chaps are devastating the local wildlife.
I have been seeing more antillean crested hummers of late and have turned up a lovely pair of american kestrels near my house too. They seem to be making a meal of a lizard on a telephone pole every time I leave the house.
