Notes on the Birds of Bequia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, West Indies

Graham L. White


The Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalists' Club visited Bequia, in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for six days in August of 1999. I took the opportunity to note the birds that were seen in Bequia and the Tobago Cays. While the observations were limited to the four-day visit, it is nevertheless useful to document the sightings as relatively little is known about the bird-life of the Grenadines as compared to the larger islands.
