The Birds of Grafton Estate, Tobago
Keywords:Birds, Grafton Estate, Tobago, Population study
It was proposed by the National Audubon Society that a population study of the birds of Grafton be made during 1974-1975. Grafton has been a privately controlled bird sanctuary for some years. The population study would provide valuable information to assist in the future management of the sanctuary, apart from establishing important data on the avifauna of Tobago, the study of which has hitherto been sorely neglected by comparison with that of the sister-island, Trinidad (ffrench 1975). In this report nomenclature follows standard English usage (ffrench 1973).
