Cover Photograph: This year’s cover shows a “rufous morph” female Hook-billed Kite photographed by Kevin Foster along Coora Rd, Siparia on 26 July 2020. Adult male birds tend to have the rufous coloring replaced by gray. This species is an extremely uncommon resident in Trinidad and is seen here feeding on its preferred diet of land snails. Its deeply hooked bill is an adaptation for extracting snails from their shells.
