My question is -- WHERE ARE ALL THE BIRDS?? We are staying in a villa on Long Beach Bay, we have seen ONE bird in 7 days. There is lush vegetation everywhere, many butterflies and lizards, but no birds, no birdsong in the morning, no seabirds at the beach.
We took a sail and saw one blue heron and one egret, other than that -- nothing!
Our host says it is due to the hurricane, but that was a while ago, and from what I understand, birds come back fairly quickly after a hurricane. I know there are also, in general. fewer birds on islands, but we've been to many other Caribbean islands where we saw lots of birds.
Any insight would be appreciated!
