Fun in Bermuda

Great Kiskadee

By: Pat Coate

A couple weeks back, I had the good fortune to get together with my roommate and five other friends from college, whom I hadn’t seen in many years. We had a grand time cruising from Baltimore to Bermuda. While in Bermuda I spent a morning birding and biking. I had read that Bermuda had many of the same birds that we have in WNY and it was very true, but I did manage a couple exceptions.

Great Kiskadee

The Great Kiskadees were very vocal and could be found all over the island. The photos shown here were taken at Somerset Long Bay Preserve.

White-tailed Tropicbird

The White-tailed Tropicbird was seen at several of the beach areas and in the dockyard where this picture was taken. These birds were usually flying fast and high, making them a bit of a challenge to photograph.

This was taken from the world’s smallest drawbridge. The drawbridge, which accommodates sailboat masts, is only 18 inches wide.

And a couple non-nature pix for fun:

Haven’t seen one of these before!

I didn’t see any “Slow Down for Children” signs – strong AARP lobby in Bermuda?

  1. So many flycatchers in the tropics! Kiskadees, Tody, Striped, Dusky, and Social Flycatchers, Tropical Kingbirds. They were so difficult to keep track of!
