Tobago Bird Watching - Birding with Newton
A review of Tobago's leading bird watching guide
The following 53 species of bird were sighted on 12th February, 2003, during our four or five hour bird watching session with Newton George.
It should be noted that this represents around 25% of all the species that are known to breed on Tobago, despite the fact that the bird watching was all undertaken in the most developed part of the island, within 15 minutes drive of every major hotel - namely the Grafton Caledonia Bird Sanctuary, the sewage works of the Tobago Hilton in Lowlands and on the Bon Accord Estate.
The species sighted were as follows:
Black-bellied Whistling Ducks
Black-throated Mango Hummingbird
Greater Yellow Leg
Lesser Yellow Leg
Magnificent Frigate Bird
Ruby Topaz Hummingbird
Rufous-vented Hermit Hummingbird
Short tailed Swift
Smooth billed Ani
