Additional notes on the birds of Trinidad and Tobago

Richard ffrench


As I prepare to return to my native land after more than a quarter century in Trinidad, I am pleased to submit to this journal a final update on the status of local birds, based on records over the period 1981 to 1984. I am particularly gratified that I can include a number of observations made by Trinidadian naturalists, as this indicates that local interest in ornithology is developing and will continue to grow. The following list of twenty-two species includes two new records for Trinidad and four for Tobago (some of which previously required confirmation); also one doubtful breeding record for Tobago is now confirmed.
