Adventures to have and places to see

Bird Watching

At the end of the Mountain Hike we came across a gentleman called Julio who we have dubbed Julio the Bird-Watcher. He noticed our cameras and that we were taking lots of pictures of birds. He suggested we go on a wagon ride to the Lake and he would help us spot birds along the way. The next day we met outside the resort and enjoyed a wagon ride. Julio had a very keen eye and ear for birds. We had so much fun on that trip that we visited the National Park the next day with him. His tattered book was also a constant source of reference and confirmation of what we photographed. Most of what we saw was detailed in the link below:

Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba is a great book to use as a reference.
