This years Cuba tour once again produced a wonderful collection of national endemics and regional specialities along with a host of more widespread species including many wintering birds from North America. All of the regularly encountered endemics were found, most of which were common and widespread, with the exception of the rare and increasingly elusive Gundlach’s Hawk. Particular highlights included outstanding views of Zapata Wren, numerous Cuban Todys and Cuban Trogons, easy Cuban Grassquits at a new site, and fabulous Blue-headed and Grey-fronted Quail Doves. Bee Hummingbird, the world’s smallest bird, is always a top target and we had marvellous views of multiple birds at two sites in the legendary Zapata National Park.
