The main purpose of our trip to Cuba was to find and identify the endemic birds on the island of Cuba and outlying Cays.  Endemic is defined as ” native or restricted to a certain country or area”.  Our group saw 24 of the 26 possibilities.  We did not see the Cuban Kite and Greater Antillean Nightjar.

I was able to photography many of the species but not all that we saw.  The Bee Hummingbird is so small and quick that they are almost impossible to photograph.  The day we got great views of the Gundlach´s Hawk, I did not have my long lens on the camera and missed a great shot.
