Keywords:Ornithology, Birds, Trinidad and Tobago
As he prepares to return to his native land after more than a quarter century in Trinidad, Richard ffrench submits a final update on the status of local birds, based on records over the period 1981 to 1984. He includes several observations made by Trinidadian naturalists, as it 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); one doubtful breeding record for Tobago is now confirmed.
