Trinidad & Tobago — a birder’s paradise

Naturalist Roger Neckles describes his experience birdwatching in Trinidad and Tobago: “Trinidad, lying just seven miles off the Venezuela coast at the nearest point, is 55 miles by 40; Tobago, lying 26 miles north-east of its larger sister, is 26 miles by seven and a half. In both islands there is a wide diversity of terrain, from rich virgin rain forest to mangroves, swamps, savannah and coastline. We are well within the top 10 countries in the world in terms of the number of species per square mile.”

Touring Trinidad: Port of Spain

Port of Spain is a booming, buzzing metropolis, expanding within its boundaries with new business developments stimulated by inward investment. The capital of Trinidad and Tobago, it sprawls from the Gulf of Paria back into the foothills of the rugged Northern Range. When it became the capital in 1757, it was a muddy little seaport. Now, it is one of the busiest commercial centres in the Caribbean, and a hotbed of entrepreneurial and artistic activity as well.
