St. Lucia Day Six

Tropical Mockingbird in a Tulip Tree

Streaked Saltator, also in the Tulip Tree


The last morning before flying home. We wandered the 22 acres of the resort. This ended up being really nice for birding. Saw my first Streaked Saltator and first Brown Trembler. The Brown Trembler has the most amazing eyes. Having one of these birds pop out of a bush and stare at you is actually rather unnerving.

I don't want to leave this island. There is so much more to explore. And that turquoise water calls. Sigh.

Land Crab. These rather large crabs lived in holes all over the grounds of the resort.
