48 hrs in Puerto Rico in a couple of weeks (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Anyone birded /traveled around Puerto Rico recently?


I'll likely just try for the endemics /some regional specialties -

Just not sure how well the island has recovered from the hurricane; also I prepped for a trip here a while back but never went and lost the notes etc so not sure where to go- looks like a fairly easy prep though in terms of calls and maps.
Struggling to find info on where to see Puerto Rican Parrot... the nightjar looks difficult as well but I have locations for that.
Thanks Neils - I'll only be on the west side of the island so looks like I'll miss it - I'll now only have ~20 hrs birding anyway - but with luck I should have a decent shot all the other endemics (except perhaps the nightjar).
Larry that's around where I intend to look for it - sounds like you had a fun trip. I'm squashing a fair bit in in 24 hrs but I'm only doing the west side of the island. Anyway I flicked through a couple of recent reports on cloud birders and I had forgotten about the successful reintroduction effort of the parrot at Rio Abajo state forest where #'s are apparently quite healthy now ... So I have very good shot at all the endemics and a number of regional specialties...
